Last weekend, we did a fabulous walk through Baslow on the outskirts of Sheffield with the walking group. The walk was billed at almost 6 miles and relatively easy. Our group leaders definitions are often to be taken with a pinch of salt!
We parked up in the picturesque village of Baslow. I promised myself that I would dip my toes in the river afterwards.
The first part of our walk took in a steep climb through the village (and past some stunning houses!) .
It was worth the climb as the views from the top were gorgeous.
We could see right down to Chatwsorth - can you just see the house on the left hand side of the photo?
I'm not the only person who stops frequently to take photo's - Hubby was convinced she was a blogger! (but she didn't know what a blog was)
There are some amazing rock formations up here - this was called Eagle Rock.
And surprisingly plenty of commemorative monuments!
It was a really great walk - very hot, but plenty of walkers to chat to along the way and a pub stop half way round (which was very welcome!)
We always take a group shot at the Trig Points
This monument was dedicated to Horatio Nelson.
And these are 3 of his ships....
They all had their names carved on them.
I never got my paddle - but we did manage another restorative drink in the pub instead.
And a quick walk around the church yard before heading back home.
