We got away for three days last week and went to the Peak District in Derbyshire.

We went to meet our U3A walklers for a six mile walk round the Northern arm of the Ladybower reservoir.

Then we went into Buxton and Gill got involved with a bit of Well Dressing activity. She asked to help for about 30 minutes and was able to finish two number ones.

Pictures are here

oh some of my favourite countryside around there! I miss it so much! In our teenage years we used to go camping at Coopers Farm in Edale (at the start of the Pennine Way), hiking around Dove Holes & Mam Tor, went to the well dressing in Eyam and remember days in Bakewell, Ladybower, Buxton. Our milkman brought milk from Chapel-en-le-Frith. Visits to Treak Cliff Cavern, Speedwell Caves around Castleton & the Blue John Mines,..... oh I love that area! I really miss the dry stone walls of Derbyshire. I have never liked the high hedges of Devon countryside.
Paul, to mis-quote Bob Hope, thanks for the memories. :D

What the heck is well dressing (which, you can tell from my avatar, I don't)?

Hmm, I have a vague recollection of the subject coming up before with Carib. I probably asked the same question.
