South of Matlock

Pig and I went out for a stole today. To blow some cobwebs away and formulate Pennine Way plans for June next year.

From Matlock, we headed up to Riber Castle then south across the hills to Crich, lunch at The Midland and then back up along the disused Cromford Canal to the aquaduct, a swift pint of Crag Rat at the White Lion Inn and then back down the hill next to the cable car station.

We did plan to do about 16 miles, but we set off a bit late and had to be at a social this evening so we had to cut it short.

Nice walk though. If a bit pedestrian. The weather was good for it. I forget what's on the doorstep sometimes, and that we live in a World Heritage site.
