I leave Silkstone Common first to Silkstone. This area used to be a big mining area exploiting the Silkstone coal seam. It's significantly cooler today which is a welcome relief.
I walk through the grounds of Cannon Hall with it's fantasy garden framed by bits of churches ripped from local parishes by the Victorians.
I walk up to the top of Hoyland Bank.
And then drop down into one of my favourite places - the Yorkshire Sculpture Park. I've never approached it from this direction and even more than ever it sits in harmony with the landscape around.
I've been walking so long that the wheat has changed from green to golden.
Through some villages on the edge of Leeds and then I'm at East Ardsley to stay with my friends Alex and Philippa for the night.
