Pendle Hill in the distance
Ian approaching the prominent cairn erected by the Scouts association on the main path along the northern edge of the Pendle plateau. It commemorates a former Clitheroe doctor and scout district commissioner Gordon 'Peri' Hampson, who died in 1985
This substantial shelter was erected in 1983 on the Pendle Hill Plateau – a popular lunch stop with walkers

Unusual bit of ironmongery on one of the gates
No idea what this is – at one of the farms on the way down boiler? incinerator?
