The Strines had an excellent car parking philosophy too. As long as you fancy a pint or two after ;)

The Strines is a weird pub. You get two heritage experiences for the price of one. Not only is it very Olde Worlde because of the ancient fabric of the building, but you also step back in time to the Seventies which looks like it was the last time they updated the decor and the menu. Most of the clientele look like they first went there in the Seventies too.

Aye, indeed. Sadly, not 70's prices, tho ;)

I like it, tho. Good, real food and well kept beer. Suits me.

Also, don't forget the peacocks!

Yeah the map is handy. It was pretty obvious for the most part, just follow the people. Getting home, we ended up missing the fork and going back via Lost Lad.

It was an easy walk and I didn't need the map, just followed all the people. There was a constant trail of people like refugees fleeing a war zone, I'm just glad I avoided the valley as I heard it was mobbed down there.

They did three fly pasts, two down the valley and the inbetween one up the valley. That spot overlooking the dam was ideal and I saw the planes from above as well as from below. I'd go again :)

It's a lovely spot, even without vintage warbirds, and the gradient is just right for lying on, and looking out, rather than up.

There's a stand of trees, on your left as you approach the bank above the eastern end of the dam, marking the top of Near Deep Clough I'd like to investigate one day.

Glad the weather held too, must have been about perfect!

I've always found the food to be ok. Its not great and nowhere near as good as i'd like it to be.

No Ob, just disappointed that I missed Sunday's flypast.


Though I'm finding t'internet useful at the moment since I picked up a tick bite yesterday and I'm looking up whether there's Lyme Disease around Sheffield. No conclusive answer so far.

If you'd been in down in the sultry, tropical home counties or west country, it would be worth getting checked out. If it was a Northern tick then you're probably ok.

I am not a medic.

On the plus side, you almost certainly don't have Tick Borne Encephalitis.

It's what the internet is for. As in, if there were no internet, would someone turn a cement mixer into a giant disco ball, and if they did, would we have heard about it?

That whole scenario is now a kind of Proustian Schrödinger's  Cat. Thanks for that.
