Days Out: Snowy Peak District, Part 1

| No Comments | No TrackBacks
A few weeks ago, I planned a visit to the Peak District. Over those three days that I visited, there was heavy snow. Some of the roads were hardly passable. I've not been to the Peak District before, so it would be nice to see it when it's not covered in snow too. I got some good photographs of the snow and the picturesque villages in the snow.

One of the villages I visited was Bakewell. This village is famous for its puddings and the tart named after it. Unfortunately, the bakery/cafe selling these puddings was shut (as were most other shops). This village has a picturesque church on top of the hill, and there's a pretty bridge crossing a river. Along the river, I watched Canadian geese and ducks swimming in the river.

I also visited the town of Buxton and had a walk down from a car park at the top of a hill to large gardens. I also visited Poole's Cavern not far from here.

On the final day of the stay, the sun came out in the morning. I managed to take a few photographs on the drive through the Peak District.
