We start our climb up the Roaches (les Roches in French) at this hut
Dedicated to the great climber Don Whillans
The landscape is a spooky mix of rocks and moss
It's a steep climb
Views below
The Doxey Pool
We continue along the ridge
Interesting rock strata
We catch up with the harder group, who immediately depart when they see us!
A brief pause at the top as it's cold
We descend into the chasm of Lud's Church, said to be used as a secret place of worship by the Lollards, followers of John Wycliffe
A very steep descent
Helena tries unsuccessfully to remove one of the coins hammered into yet another tree trunk
Our destination in sight, Tittesworth Reservoir
We can look back at the Roaches
We pass this farm
A REAL monkey puzzle tree!
And finally Tittesworth Reservoir.
