Baslow and Chatsworth Walk

On a dampish Tuesday 12th October, eleven brave walkers assembled in Baslow for a walk through the magnificent parkland surrounding Chatsworth. The walk started by visiting Queen Mary’s Bower – traditionally supposed to have been built in 1570 for the benefit of Mary Queen of Scots who was imprisoned at Chatsworth. The way then progressed past the House and wound its way up to 16th Century Hunting Tower – bizarrely it is now available for rental via Airbnb! By this time, the rain had stopped and a fine view over the estate opened up for us while we enjoyed a short break. We then followed a high level path along Dobb Edge before dropping down into the valley. The morning finished with an enjoyable and convivial lunch. Thanks to Andrew and Sue for organising and leading the walk.
