The '85 Monsoon Season Expedition of our Senior Common Room Walking, Eating and Drinking Club was a little late starting. Any expedition to the source of the Pennine Way (PW) — in the footsteps of Alfred Wainwright and Tom Stephenson — is subject to unlooked for logistic difficulties. In our case it was that one of us, myself, could not start before lunch on Saturday; the full Academic Board, at its final meeting of term, had declined to allow us to close the Library on Saturdays‐in‐August. And so our first day consisted of a sortie from the railway station at Edale to the Youth Hostel, ditto.
