The Peak District Part 2

We started the morning with a visit to Arbor Low, a Neolithic henge.

Afterwards we visited the very beautiful Haddon Hall.
#16 in our Thirty in Thirty.

In the afternoon we hiked through Dovedale, up a very steep hill to start with!
#17 in our Thirty in Thirty.
Getting there!

Phew, made it to the top!
Worth it for the views!

The going down again was just as steep, into Dovedale.

A beautiful end to the day.
The initial idea to holiday in the Peak District started with the plan to visit the RHS flower show at Chatsworth House.

The Gardener's World Team were there that day.
While we were there we decided to take the opportunity to visit Chatsworth House.
Another stunning place to visit.

On the last day of our holiday we visited the gardens at Thornbridge Hall in the morning.

After a lovely lunch,
we headed to Youlgreave, the start of our hike through Lathkill Dale.
#21 in our Thirty in Thirty.
This was a much gentler walk, but it was rather hot.

The perfect end to our relaxing week away.
