It has been almost three years since our last geocaching vacation in the UK, but we have many times talked about coming back to this beautiful country and it's public footpaths. On all our previous trips we had to rely on public transportation, but this time we rented a car, which gave us much more flexibility to plan each day trip.
Today was the sixth day in a row with focus on the L E G E N D Letterbox caches. Our main goal of the day was the Widdop Section, and since this circular is not particularly long, we also had time for a detour to the Hurstwood Section. The trip offered plenty of scenic views to reservoirs, nice rock formations and beautiful grassy hills. It also offered the most demanding footpath, we have walked so far! The part of the circular across the Heptonstall Moor and Hoar Side Moor was almost impassable due to ditches full of water and water holes, which were invisible due to tall grass. We both fell into such water holes and were drenched, when we got a decent path under our feet again. This demanding part of the circular lowered our average speed significantly, and it was dark, when we arrived at our car after the 28 km hike.
This cache was found at 10:49.
Thanks for the cache and greetings from Denmark!
