It was a bit of a grey day but stayed dry all day, again. Breakfast was slow, but good, so we eventually left at 10am. We started by walking down to the river at the foot of Lathkill Dale.
Grey day in the Peak District
The gorge is very steep sided here so on a dull day like today it was too dark for pictures. A few dog walkers were out but no-one else.
We climbed out of the dale and across a plateau area, down into another part of Lathkill Dale, up the other side and along under some large vertical limestone cliffs. From here it was just a short stretch to Monyash.

As luck would have it the Bulls Head pub was open so we decided to have a break, it was 12.30pm.
From here we made our way to Flagg, then to the A6 at Taddington before dropping down to Millers Dale. As luck would have it the Anglers Rest was open, at 3.15pm, so we stopped for a break.

Tideswell was just a couple of miles away from here, up a steep slope then across some fields and down into the village. The George Hotel was to be our hostelry for the night.
Our good friends Mick and Kay from Inverness were down touring around England and we arranged to meet up for the evening. It was a good night.
Tomorrow we walk to Edale.
