Dales Diary

We are on a coach trip from VangeRover up to the Lake District via the Derbyshire Dales and returning on Sunday via Chester. I know that we are staying on the outskirts of Widnes which is in Cheshire which will be a new county for me. If that fails, Chester is definitely in Cheshire.😀

As the weather was rather poor, we didn’t stop in Matlock as planned but spent an hour at the Masson Mill on the outskirts of Matlock Bath so we could shelter from the elements. I took the opportunity to find the 2/3.5 DVMHS : Masson Mill trad up the bank across the road. The climb up the slippery track was well worth its 3.5T.🙁 Check out the photograph.🤔

We left the mill and set off up to Bakewell. We had spent part of our honeymoon here thirty years ago so visited a couple of places we knew before setting back for the coach. Luckily the well placed Lemon Drizzle~Bakewell Puddings, in its splendid container, was on the route to the coach park.😀
