Some more views - Derbyshire this time
A view across the Derbyshire Peak District as we were driving back to Sheffield.
It had poured with rain the entire journey and stopped just long enough for me to leap out of the car, camera in hand.
You can just see Stanage Edges (middle right) where my daughter and her housemate did a walk recently, ending up at Hathersage. She was telling me that they came across a pile of Millstone Grit grindstones, just abandoned because something more efficient/innovative had been found. HERE is a link to a great website which will give you lots more views, including a pic off the millstones. There is a seperate gallery of wonderful photos too.
I just wish I could have taken photos of some of the views on my return journey yesterday. Sadly, there are few places to park up and get the camera out, especially on the steep and winding cross country roads.
Here is a taster of the next lot of photos though . . .
I'll give you a clue - Gothic Revival Church . . . and a bigger clue, Augustus Pugin.
