N=22 on the walk The weather was w=misty-and-chilly-poor-visibilty-becoming-low-autumnal-sun-later.
A very pleasant day for walking though Bridgewater arms pub lunch was only okay
At least 5 of us climbed the monument at Bridgewater monument ( £2.50 if you are not a NT member ) and that adds 66 metres to the length of our walk and makes it a 9 out of 10 for toughness but the views were still a bit hazy
Valiant Arms tea was okay but far from valiant
Thanks for a good day.

Lovely walk despite the misty start. Re the refreshments, I'd say the Bridgewater Arms has a good value menu (£5.95 for v good fish and chips)and Valiant Trooper did a v nice tea, in proper pots! Chocolate brownie went down well.
