Snailbeach and the Devil’s Chair

The fog has cleared and it’s a beautiful afternoon for a walk on the Stiperstones. We’ve started from Snailbeach, and gone up past Resting Hill chimney, skirting Crowsnest Dingle to reach the ridge. The Devil’s not in his chair today, fortunately. To the south, a hazy remnant of the fog fills the valley, glowing in the bright sunshine. Red kites wheel above the ridge (out of range of the camera). We return on lower paths, gazing wistfully on the Bog Centre, not yet open for tea and cakes… It’s been a great day, out on these hills.
