I very nearly had to cancel because of a prolonged and continuing bout of sciatica, but hoped that tablets and less ambition may see me through. Even low level walks in the Lake District are more than worthwhile and I had great faith in the “Navigator” to ensure good walks would be had.
With the car packed we set off north. As is usual on our jaunts we stop en route for a short walk to enable legs to be stretched. This time, to avoid a long time driving we stopped in PANT just outside of the Welsh border where the “Navigator” had been eyeing up the limestone outcrop as worthy of exploration.
Worthy it was. We walked alongside the Montgomery Canal and then up into an area of long abandoned quarries and onto a fine viewpoint where we had lunch.

|Spot the goats|
|Navigator checking the panel was correct|
The way back found us on Offas Dyke for a short while.
|Possibly sulphur tuft|
We continued our journey north to our base for the week, spotting various hills we had already ticked off in the past.
