We pointed the Morgan, freshly polished, towards the Trough of Bowland from where we made our way to Slaidburn and on into Yorkshire.

The surface had been recently relaid and chippings were flying from other vehicles that were ignoring the 20 mph speed limit, plus there was a Council lorry sweeping up the chippings and creating a considerable amount of dust.....not the place for a newly polished Morgan!!
Surprising how many cars have defective speedometers nowadays!!!
However, we found a lovely area where we could have our picnic, enjoying the extensive panorama across a lump of Lancashire, the Cumbrian fells and the beautiful limestone landscape of the Yorkshire Dales.

|Gorgeous! ...and the wife's not bad either!|
