Higger Tor - Burbage valley - a great overhanging rock climb!My first rock climb on Burbage North.

Burbage Valley.

In April I gave a lecture on my walking life in the Central Library in Sheffield. One of the audience came up afterwards and asked if I would give his club a talk. I agreed and later received an email with dates. I held off for it was not economical to travel from London for just one talk. For the next three months I kept putting him off! Then out of the blue I got a talk request from the Winster Historical Society for the sameday! I quickly arranged both and looked forward to late November 2014 to do the two talks.

I left at 6am and drove to Sheffield, via Chesterfield and Dronfield; a trip down memory lane seeing where my father had his factories and as I drove through Sheffield I went up a road where my Uncle used to live. The morning talk went well with a full house. Afterwards at 1pm I was at Fox House and left the car to do a six mile walk in the Burbage Valley. This was where I first walked aged 13 and where I first rock climbed aged 16! A real trip down memory lane. The weather was fine and I was in T shirt and shorts.

By late afternoon I was in rowsley for dinner before going to Winster. I arrived at the Burton Institute early and found the door open, so unloaded my gear ready for the talk. Another full house and a wine reception afterwards. I left at 10am and was back home in London by just after midnight, having driven 336 miles overall.
The whole day was magical and I couldn't have planned a better day; it will remain as one of my most enjoyable days, full of synchronicity and lovely people.
