Parked on the A621 close to the first stoop which was only about 100 yards up the track.

The next problem was getting accross the brook, fortunately Rob spotted a flat rock which only needed a small jump to get over to the other side.

These would have been invaluable to travellers, especially in bad weather or snow.

It didn't look that far but unfortunately there was a big gully and brook between us and the track on the other side of the valley.
So we slowly went down to the barbrook 200 feet below, Geoff slid down some of it on his backside. crossed over the brook and climbed about 100 feet up to the track.
|A small step for man but a giant leap for a 74 year old!!|

I have included my favourite pic from this week in black & white. Please tell me what you think.

We got to the road just as Ike pulled up in the car.
Another great adventure.
Roll on next Sunday.
