Bakewell (circular) - Derbyshire (White Peak) - 31/03/16 - 9.5 Miles

Monsal Trail (couldn't fit all the school holiday kids riding bikes in the picture)
Another wormhole (which hopefully swallowed some of the cyclists).
Monsal Viaduct and blurry guy.
Information board demonstrates the strength of my camera's flash.

Barlow (circular) - Derbyshire (Peak District) - 25/03/16 - 8.5 Miles - Helen (Molly)

Oh no, the map is coming out.
Despite misplacing her glass eye, Helen was soon cheered up with a slice of Simnel Cake.
Molly had her eye on some cake as well.
Why do they never tell you in the country where you are.
Oh alright then !

Cave Dale and the Caverns (Castleton circular) - Derbyshire White Peak District - 12/03/16 - 7.5 Miles - Helen (Molly)

On the way up from Cave Dale, which apparently cuts through an ancient reef.
Overlooked by Peveril Castle.
Mini Alps.
It was still cold; just ask the Shivering Mountain.
Although a little surprised to see pockets of snow (maybe that's why we missed the entrance to the Blue John Cavern).
