    Twelve members and a dog set off from Litton in lovely
    summer weather – appropriate as it was the official first day
    of summer. Heading down Tansley Dale, we noted a fine
    display of early purple orchids. The route continued through
    Cressbrook Dale to Cressbrook Mill where we paused for a
    coffee break. An encounter with a tyre suspended over the
    mill stream resulted in a minor injury not predicted by the
    risk assessment. A pleasant walk through Water-cum-Jolly
    Dale and Millers Dale followed; we paused at one point to
    watch the trout in the river. We soon arrived at Litton Mill
    and found a lunch venue well equipped with benches, table
    and chairs – a children’s play area. We strolled up
    Tideswell Dale, pausing at the car park to take advantage of
    the facilities. The final leg of the walk was up Litton
    Dale, soon leaving the road by a path heading uphill through
    fields back to the starting point. An easy but enjoyable
    walk of six miles which we rounded off by enjoying tea and
    cakes outside the Litton shop.
