No I'm not putting 20pence in it for you James! - Remains of an old tractor near Crackpot Hall.

All in all a pleasant walk, the first half taking us north along the Pennine Way to Tan Hill, after which the going becomes tough across open moorland and peat bogs until we reach Rogan's Seat.

Look out for the dissused and seemingly bottomless mineshafts that plunge vertically down into the ground, we found two, its a good job they have safety cages fixed over them.
