Sorry, Alex, but there was some Black Forest type cake - juicy with cherries. THAT was the best cake.

Or was it the fruit loaf at the school checkpoint that then powered me over the moors?

Hmmmm.... yes, need to go back next year to check.

I LOVE CAKE!

Despite Catharine's indecision, I am entirely certain that the apple cake was by far the best I've ever tasted.

A pity that we couldn't meet everyone at the finish due to our inadvertant meandering but nevermind. A wonderful walk, hard work but lovely views.

Our only meanders were due to slight (unintentional) deviations from the route. We managed to miss the start so didn't see any other walkers the whole way round but all the helpers were lovely and saved plenty of cakes for us.

THE CAKES WERE INDEED THE BEST ON ANY EVENT! Everyone agreed: the only thing we couldn't decide on was which our favourite was. Have to go back next year to check...

Thanks so much to Pete and everyone else who organised it. It was lovely walking across the moors enjoying the fabulous views just as the Bronte sisters did all those years ago!

I missed the bagpipes too (although a young lad was playing them on Ilkley Moor on Sunday at the fell race). Great event again. I must admit to slight little meanders at a couple of points. Led astray by people not doing the official route but going round on the roads (cutting corners!). What is the point?

Well, I missed the bagpipes player but agree in every other respect. It is a tough event; the climb out of Haworth may be less than 200m but it feels like a lot more. Great food - jam butties don't come any better and the cakes were wonderful. Substantial corned-beef hash, and lemon sponge and custard at the end. Thanks to everyone for an excellent day out.
