Dark Peak

Bright sunny day saw us on a quiet track in the Derwent Valley .The waters are low even for August but lots of dragonflies around .The heather is beautiful and a south Westerly breeze pushes the huge white fluffy clouds across the sky.

Drove to Glossop for a late lunch but disappointingly the town had nothing to offer.Unlike Bleaklow .Windy and desolate yet exhilarating.

Early August.

August weather is disappointing. Warm days interrupted by heavy rain and gloom.Not much chance to get out and about. We are quite busy at the Old House Museum with a new Installation by Anita Spencer.

A glorious day found us at Robin Hood’s Stride and Nine Ladies Close followed by a visit to Stanton Moor. We encountered two young buzzards along the way. Blackberries are ripening quickly as well.
