5 “usual suspects” and one non suspect ( Judith on Easter holiday) met by Gardoms Edge in welcoming sunshine -T shirts,sun glasses & sun hats were donned and,shock horror,a pair of shorts!
The weather remained fine and we ambled along traversing Gardoms Edge and so over to Chatsworth following the high ground and Edges to Stand Wood from where we descended through the park towards Baslow.
Lunch near the park limits was followed by a stiff climb above Baslow and across Gorse Bank Lane with great views of Stoney Middleton and Eyam.One last pull and we reached the Wellington Monument with the track back to the road and the cars with only a group of menacing looking Angus cattle barring the way.We passed unheaded,however, and were soon back at the cars.
A lovely spring day in contrast to the weather since.
