First from the 12-100

I am finally back at the computer, and started looking at the photos I took before my surgery. I have to say, in this difficult lighting condition, I did like the detail it pulls out.

Excellent detail under difficult lighting and a good choice of subject.

So there is light at the end of the tunnel.

I'd love to walk through there.

Thank you.

Its one of our 'go-to' walks. Catch a train to Whatstandwell and walk the canal to Cromford. We are looking for alternative routes from Cromford to Matlock instead if the road past the mill, so we can walk in relative peace to catch the train at the terminus, to head back to Nottingham.

Now my knee has been fixed I'm guessing we will be heading up the incline railway sometimes too... after the consultant has given me the all clear

Re: First from the 12-100

Cromford also has this wonderful mecca for lovers of used books (and they also have a nice cafe, and the very photogenic millpond outside). Not to be missed if you like that sort of thing.

http://www.scarthinbooks.com/

As for walking between Whatstandwell and Cromford, if you want a change from the river / railway / canal valley, then Intake Lane might be a good quiet alternative. No through road for motor vehicles nowadays I think but navigable on foot.

P.S. I see I misread that - you want a walk from Cromford to Matlock, not Whatstandwell. I can't better what Phill D has supplied.

Could be a viable meet? I'm not far off. Lots of photographic interest thereabouts too. Cromford Mill pond, Via Gellia, Matlock Bath, Black Rocks, Climbers on High Tor / Wildcat crags etc. (Years ago I used to climb ...).

Could bring my dearest who isn't a photographer but would happily spend many hours in Scarthin.

These bring back memories. I used to live in Darley Dale when I was in my teens. If there was a meet, I would almost certainly attend....

Good work...

Scarthin's home made Homity pie is well worth the visit alone!
I love the old books too. I took Henry there when he visited last year.

Aside from the superb IQ it's a very impressive tunnel, Tracey. We have nothing like that downunder that I know of.

I haven't got that, so thanks. We did buy an OS map that had digital download, but we have mislaid the map, sigh... no doubt the day we buy its replacement is the day it turns up again.

Recovery... slow and steady... but I'm happy with that.

My family house was actually in Two Dales, overlooking Darley Dale. I lived there in the early 60's, and used to spend school holidays in the Red House riding stables, helping out with stabling and riding...(those were the days)
