I am going out for more walking, exploration and photo-snapping in Derbyshire today but before putting my key in Clint's ignition, I thought I would share some more pictures with you. They were taken last Friday - the same day that I visited Alsop-en-le-Dale with its much-loved little church. It was a beautiful day.
Here's moss growing on a limestone wall near Tissington:-
Here's the farmhouse of Manor Farm in Alsop-en-le-Dale:-
Here's a view of Johnson's Knoll south of Biggin:-
Here's a cow calmly observing me from a field north of Parwich:-
Here's the triangulation pillar on Aleck Low. It was erected here in the 1920's in relation to the Ordnance Survey's drive to map our country ever more accurately. The pillars are now largely redundant because modern technology has overtaken old-fashioned triangulation. Just behind the pillar, the raised ground is the site of a 4000 year old burial mound.
On my way home, I stopped to take this picture of the little mere in the village of Monyash:-
Soon it will be time to drive out there again. Perhaps I will gather more pictures to share with you. Cheerio!
