On Sunday we decided to get out and have some fresh air with the twins. Kaitlin and Jack were bowling in Wolverhampton with Grandad so it was just me Neil and the twins. We decided to try and see how they would cope with a trek up the hill to Peel Tower. It quite a steep hill and can be hard on your legs on the way up.
We parked up at The Shoulder of Mutton in Holcombe so we could go for lunch after our walk. We put our wellies on because when Neil tackled it the other week he got Kaitlin’s trainers a right mess. It’s turns out it was a good choice after squelching through marsh land. There are some rather muddy and swampy spots you have to cover to get b down the hill.
We set off up the hill which is pretty steep and rocky . The sun was shining and it was a little hot in the wellies but we plodded on with lots of breaks and juice along the way.
We made it to the top and the boys loved seeing the Peel Tower (they called its a castle) at the top. We then made our way back down. Neil had a brilliant idea to cross the marshland though. It was rather squelchy in places but the boys loved it in their wellies.
After mountaineering our way down the hill we went to The Shoulder of Mutton for food. I’ve never been before but Neil had tried it the week before and said it was lovely. The boys ordered fish fingers and chips, I had steak and ale pie and Neil had a sandwich. The boy’s meals were amazing real fish fingers like mini fish from the chippy. They demolished it all. Both mine and Neil’s food was nice as well and it’s certainly somewhere we will go back to.
