Walk: Pennine Way, Ickornshaw Moor, Ponden Reservoir, The Bronte Way, The Millennium Way, Keighley Moor, Earl Crag 
Start Point: All Saints Church, Ickornshaw Grid Reference: SD 968 430
Distance: 16 miles Ascent: 2,300 feet
Time: 7.25 hours
Weather: Rain and drizzle in the morning, fine in the afternoon but overcast

Seven walkers including a guest rambler from Huddersfield joined the leader for this walk.  The outward trek over Ickornshaw Moor was a little miserable with rain and mist spoiling the views. The weather improved as we descended into Ponden Clough and stayed dry for the return over Keighley Moor. A long walk but everyone seemed to enjoy it.
