Flagging in the Snow

On the last Saturday in November, the weekend work party volunteers arrived in Marsden and found it looking very wintry. Snow was falling and the ground was white. A lovely day to be on the moors!

The work was doing more flag laying on the old Pennine Way and despite the path being nearly finished, there was still more than a mile walk to start our labouring. Once at the area of path we were working on, it took just one flag to be placed for everyone to be looking very dirty.

The snow stopped falling on us and we continued working hard to attempt to stay warm enough, only stopping for a cup of tea or pork pie for extra energy. By the end of the day, we had finished the section, and we trudged back to the vehicles looking like we had done a hard days' work.
