'The Joy of Living' is a magnificent song. Both it and 'Manchester Rambler' mention Bleaklow, which was one of Ewan's favourite spots, and is a an hour or so's walk from my front door if you don't mind a bit of a climb. I always think of 'Rambler' when I 'see the white hare in the gully, and the curlew fly high over head', both of which are frequent occurrences up there.
