Holiday Photos
After a damp walk along Froggatt Edge and Curbar Edge, our leader, Tony, encourages us to make a small detour to the coffee van in the layby. This is what we find!
There are views, but not as good as we'd hoped.
We continue on to Baslow Edge
Where we smile valiantly for a group photo.
We head towards the Eagle Stone
Very impressive.
Wellington Monument in the mist, where the harder group will pass.
As we descend, we find periwinkles
At Ladywell Farm
We descend into Baslow for our lunch stop
A village full of daffodils

After lunch we enter the Chatsworth Estate via this unusual kissing gate
This is its purpose.
We pass Barbrook House, the home of ..........................
this man.
The expanse of the parkland is immense
A different sort of dry stone walling from the Cotswolds
But very attractive.
There's always someone who leaves their stick behind!

We head to Edensor, the village that one of the Dukes moved from its original spot so it was out of sight!

In the graveyard is the aforementioned Sir Joseph Paxton

And also Kathleen Kennedy who married into the Devonshire family, and was the sister of .......................
The future President of the USA whose visit is also commemorated.
We look back over to the house as we climb out of the estate
And in brilliant sunshine descend to Bakewell with its bridge of padlocks.
