I visited my friend Hannah and her family in Rotherham and then catch the train back to Sheffield to start the day's walking - through the city centre.
I'm soon on a main road leaving the city. Traffic thundering past. It's all car showrooms, light industry, MOT garages and offices - with Hillsborough Stadium interrupting. Red poppies struggling through concrete.
I climb up hill, in the blazing sun, up Birley Edge - look across and back over Sheffield.
Along the edge I come to Wharncliffe Wood, where I am going to spend the next two hours walking.
Then to the village of Wortley (via a small stretch of the Tour de Yorkshire course). I visit Wortley Hall - "The Workers' Stately Home". This lovely house is owned by a co-operative and has strong links with the Trade Union movement.
Walking winding roads through beautiful countryside on a summer's late afternoon. The light bouncing off mounds of oilseed rape after flowering. To Silkstone Common - outside Barnsley - for the night.
