It turned out to be a dry St Swithin’s day so I thought that I’d better make the most of it on a 9½ mile walk with 1,900ft of ascent starting from Hayfield. The first major climb of about 500ft took me to the top of Lantern Pike. There then followed a few ups and downs before the second major climb of 650ft over Burnt Hill to Mill Hill in the shadow of the Kinder plateau. From here it was all mainly downhill back to Hayfield.
