We had a wonderful walk in the Peak District, always a joy. This particular walk is one of my favourites. We walked the length of Wolfcotes Dale along the side of the River Dove hemmed in by cliffs, all the way to the village of Milldale, where we had lunch and a wonderful cherry bakewell ice cream.
The weather was overcast, but dry and quite warm, a pleasant day. We then walked up to Alstonefield, another picturesque village. We went past Narrowdale hill and into Beresford Dale again picking up the River Dove, along the way we saw Peregrine Falcons and Mandarin Ducks.
The walk was 9.30 miles after which we had a well earned pint outside the pub back at Hartington.
