Peak District Walk with Wendy & Derek

Peak District Walk

For our first walk of the holiday we went along the River Derwent then climbed up into fields to get views across the valley and on to the pretty village of Darley Bridge. We returned to Matlock along part of the Derwent Valley Heritage Way finishing up by the Peak Rail train track just as a steam train was passing by. 

We gathered outside for the bonfire night celebrations. The massive bonfire was lit and soon it was a roaring inferno that kept us all warm as we watched the fantastic firework display.

At the Chatsworth Estate we had a lovely time visiting all the rooms which were already decorated for Christmas.  

Another day we went to Dovedale in the South Peak area. We walked beside the River Dove and crossed it by the famous stepping stones, then had a steady climb across Lin Dale with magnificent views of the surrounding hills. 

We drove on to Tissington where we took a stroll around this quaint village going past the picturesque Tissington Hall and the famous well.

In the evening we enjoyed playing friendly games of pool. 

Evening were spent in lovely local pubs with great food. We listened to some very talented local musicians playing guitars and singing.
