After breakfast we went outside into the sunshine. Yes, at last we had a sunny day with the odd white fluffy cloud. There could be some proper photos today on my Mamiya 7!
I started with Tideswell church, commonly known as the Cathedral of the Peak. There was a very nice Silver Birch tree with leaves on the turn so I put the yellow filter on to brighten the yellowy leaves. Here’s the colour phone version.
Then it was up onto the moors above again. Lots of wide open spaces and big views, especially to Mam Tor and Kinderscout.
Then it was time to go down into Castleton by the slopes next to the Castle. I also took a photo of Cave Dale from above with nice light and shadows.
Then it was down to the Nag’s Head for lunch and a pint. From here we headed for Hollins Cross and down to the Nag’s Head in Edale. It was quite warm walking up to the pass but a bit of a breeze near the top helped.
After a pleasant pint of Nag’s 1577 we headed a few hundred yards down the road to our accommodation for the night, the Ramblers Inn.
What a great day of hill walking!
Unfortunately, there was no WiFi. Fibre broadband has just been installed in Edale and they haven’t got it working properly yet. Hence this post appearing after we finished!
Tomorrow, Friday 29th September 2017, we finish by walking from Edale to Chinley to Tunstead Milton.
