Rivington Village Green – stocks

A quick change of clothes after the run to meet up with friends for a coffee at Rvington Village Tea Room where the cherry scones were to die for!  After lunch the sun shone and the light was fantastic.

More stunning light drew me out for a run earlier than normal on a Sunday morning.

Up to the Wingates Trigpoint

Having just got to the trigpoint, the furthest point on my route a shower of rain came on.  It didn’t last long and I headed on with the sun returning strongly.
