Winter Hill – 16 February

A glorious morning, out before sunrise and high above an inversion that engulfed Manchester-Bolton-Belmont and probably more. Intending to go back to Darwen Tower I changed my plans when I saw the inversion and realised I would spend much of the morning running in it. Long loops up and down Winter Hill proved a much more enjoyable alternative.
