Due to the recent weather it was rather muddy but as we reached the top the view was lovely
and then it was all downhill into Bakewell
where we came out by a packhorse bridge
The river was high and flowing fast
Rows of cottages were gleaming in the sun
Our first outside picnic of the year
Very busy Bakewell
A quick visit to a wool shop to pick up some lovely yellow Stylecraft Dk to use for a bunch of 'spring stick flowers' and we were on our way back to the car. But what a climb up to Bakewell station
thank goodness that once we had got there it was all flat walking on the Monsal Trail back to Hassop.
It really was a lovely walk and not too far or hard, one which we will do again. I wonder if any of you will, do let me know.
I have something special to show you tomorrow, so do come back xxx
