There's a lot of White Lodges about in Derbyshire!
The obligatory Chatsworth shot.
The road to Edensor.
That reminds me, pick up some mint sauce on the way home.
No we are not in Scotland yet, but I am trying to prepare by drinking their water.

Matlock (circular via Bonsall) - Derbyshire (Peak District) - 01/01/18 - 5.5 Miles - Helen (Molly

It was very muddy as we left Matlock, with Riber Castle away to our left.
When we reached Bonsall we stopped for a drink and some Christmas Cake.
And then picked up the Limestone Way back to Matlock. (Helen misplaced her camera by the way, so all pictures are courtesy of the World Wide Web aka internet).

The Hunting Tower canon stands ready to defend Chatsworth.

Gardoms Edge / White Edge / bottom of Birchen Edge (Circular) - Derbyshire - 14/12/17 - 7 Miles

View from Gardoms Edge at the start of the walk. To my surprise the snow was still on the ground around these parts.
By the time I passed the Eaglestone, the icy slush was starting to be felt in my non-waterproof boots.
I was surprised to see this lot still wandering about.
The trig point at White Edge, which was starting to live up to its name.
The icing appeared to have fallen off the Birchen edge cake.
