Fabulous walk today, fuelled by a Farmers breakfast from Hassop Station cafe. A full breakfast helps you walk, and keeps your hunger pangs away!
We then started our walk at Cromford Mill, parking is £4 all day. We headed up an old mill path, across the main road & climbed above the houses. We met loads of friendly animals today, thankfully all in fields , safely away from our footpaths.
View of the Crich monument ,from our high level walk along the River Derwent Valley. We visited it later in the day!
The pump house ,staffed by volunteers, pumps water up from the river below, into the Cromford canal. It runs on coal & steam.
We saw the horsedrawn canal boat ride from Cromford,along the canal to High Peak Junction return. Pulled by Shirehorses, very eco friendly & quiet.
Fantastic 6 mile walk followed by tea at W cafe Cromford, then a drive to the top of the hill near Crich to see the memorial. We were so high up we could see the Humber Bridge far away in the distance.
Here is the view from the top of the memorial hill, above .
All in all a brilliant day . Relaxed !! #result
