Peak District Walking

No progress on the makey bakey side of things, but instead I have a few photo's to share of our weekend away in the Peak District in Derbyshire. We are very fortunate to be so near the dramatic and varied Peak countryside and although we travelled only 20 or so miles to stay in Grindleford in the Dark Peak area, we were able to relax with family and friends on an overnight stay with a couple of gentle walks around the Longshaw Estate and Padley Gorge. The weather was mostly dry and we were grateful for that after some very heavy rain on Friday night which meant that the streams were very fast and full. The woodland in Padley Gorge has a Lord of the Rings feel to it and you could just imagine the trees getting up and moving around as they were so twisty and gnarly and covered in moss.
