Autumn on Stanage Edge

Autumn on Stanage Edge

Stanage Edge is one of our favourite walks, it’s impossible to get lost and can be challenging in the wet and icy conditions so it’s a good one for pushing yourself just as far as you want to go. There is a limit of course […]

A Quick Walk by The River Derwent

Living near the River Derwent means we are a) very lucky and b) often walk by the river in the evenings if we’re unable to get out for one of our longer walks in the Derbyshire Peak District. Just a hundred or so meters from […]

Carsington Water In Autumn

Today we took a walk around Carsington water, a 13km circuit that we have already written up here. Our previous visit to Carsington Water was in the summer so the landscape was very different. It wasn’t too cold (around 6-7 degrees for the most part) […]
