Signs of winter being on the way are definitely starting to creep in but this week's LTR was blessed with a clear, cool, sunny morning. The 15km route around Wheelton wasn't too bad under foot, given the recent weather. The run took in sections of the Leeds-Liverpool canal, the stunning Denham Quarry and Hough Hill provided some great panoramic views of several familiar places and sights including Winter Hill and Blackpool Tower among others.
