    Warm weather, and dry for a change. 14 members set out from
    Eyam. The first place we went to was “Cucklet Church” an
    interesting natural limestone arch and cave hidden away in
    Cucklet Delf, just south of the village. It was used instead
    of the parish church building at the time of the plague, to
    avoid spreading it. Few of us had been there before. We then
    headed up out of the village and along Tideswell Lane which
    was flooded in several places and required detours along the
    verges. We soon arrived at Brosterfield where a coffee break
    was taken. The next stage of the walk was through fields to
    Stanley House and then a path north parallel to Silly Dale,
    to the village of Grindlow, past Silence Mine and the now
    filled-in sinkhole. Arriving at Bretton, we had lunch with a
    view and the possibility of a pint at the Barrel. After
    lunch we walked through Nether Bretton and past Highcliffe,
    finally taking the steep track down to the starting point.
    7.6 miles 1070 ft of ascent.
