Setters Rocks

This walk was pretty much over similar ground to Sunday’s walk, only I headed round to Roos Tor and past Cox Tor, instead of going towards Lynch Tor this time. The weather was absolutely superb, warm enough for just a t shirt and a bit of a tan!!! It was a shame I couldn’t lengthen the walk a fair bit, however I started a bit late and had to be somewhere later. A proper spring day however the forecast for the rest of Easter is poor so I’m glad I got this one in when I did, this was indeed a Good Friday!
