Walking my way to Relaxation

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.

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.
