A Walk in the Peak District

The annual Nottingham Scottish walk was held on Saturday 17th August starting from Willersley Castle Hotel – originally built by the Arkwright family who revolutionised cotton milling in Britain and all round the world.

Eighteen members met under a cloudy sky and set off along the Cromford Canal, with a few raindrops beginning to fall. Fortunately, the rain came to nothing and, after a short break at High Peak Junction , we headed up from Lea Bridge and walked through woodland and meadows above the River Derwent. By now the sun was shining and we could admire the views across the valley, before dropping back down to our starting point.

After our walk, Willersley Castle provided us with a splendid and convivial meal. Thanks to Dieter for planning the route and organising the day.
