Chatsworth / Beeley Moor / Carlton Lees (Circular) - Derbyshire (Peak District) - 27/01/17 - 10 Miles

Three and half miles to Beeley, on a cold foggy day.
Mind you, when I did get to Beeley it wasn't any clearer.
These sheep weren't to be messed with, especially when they were enjoying some snacks.
When I honed in on Chatsworth and looked to the right of the house, I could see what was causing all the fog.

Birchen Edge (circular) - Derbyshire (Peak District) - 20/01/17 - 4.25 Miles

Yes it's this walk again; and oh look there's Nelson's Monument.
Advice for dog walkers.
The Long Horn Cattle tend to hang around the vicinity of the Wellington Monument or Eaglestone.
Some people call them Selfies; I call them Mister Potatoe-Head.

Middleton / Long Dale / Gratton Dale (circular) - Derbyshire (Peak District) - 07/01/17 - 6.5 Miles (approx) - Helen (Molly)

Helen strides out, as we leave Middleton behind us.
Molly enjoys a chew for lunch.
A brief Kodak moment before heading down to Long Dale.
Where we found an interesting memorial which said: 'we meet to create memories and depart to cherish them'.
The start of Gratton Dale which quickly turned into a slow muddy slog-fest, which ultimately meant we shortened the walk before we ran out of light.

Gardoms Edge / White Edge / Birchen Edge (Circular) - Derbyshire (Peak District) - 05/01/17 - 7 Miles

Heading up to Gardoms Edge.
Long Horned cattle grazing by the Eaglestone (no, I couldn't get any closer).
Curber Gap, where I had my snap.
Why can't all the countryside be signed this clearly.
I strike a jaunty pose next to the Trig point on White Edge.
Look closely and you can see the Moon above Birchen Edge (no, I couldn't get any closer).
