Pictures from a long weekend in the Peak District in mid-June based in the village of Grindleford.

View from the escarpment of Froggatt Edge.

The Wesleyan Reform Methodist chapel in Froggatt does not exactly radiate a warm welcome! The Wesleyan Reform Union appears to be a branch of Methodism that split off from the main movement in 1849 in disagreement over the degree of autonomy of individual churches.

Splendid footpath sign. The Peak District and Northern Counties Footpath Preservation Society is still extant but under the less Victorian sounding name of the Peak and Northern Footpaths Society.

The village of Youlgreave, starting point for a walk along the River Bradford and Lathkill Dale.

Tranquil fish ponds and ducks in the clear waters of the River Bradford.

(L) Meadow flowers and (R) the scenic Lathkill Dale (although we both felt that the stretch along the River Bradford was actually the most enjoyable section of the walk).
