The Walking Group Holiday

The Intruder

For those of slightly less ability, there was a programme of shorter walks on offer. Eight of us set off and walked from Castleton to Hope, along the valley, lovely views.

The second day six of us went into Castleton and climbed up to Peveril Castle which was interesting. We found the entrance to the Peak Cavern, very large  where it was easy to imagine pre-historic people living & working. Then on up Goosehill to find open fields & following the path we arrived at the Speedwell Caverns, an old lead mine with flooded tunnels. Four of us went down 120 steps deep inside the cave where a boat was waiting to take us through the tunnels which came out eventually to a large cavern. When we came out again it was raining, so we had a rather wet walk back.

On the 3rd day ten of us we went to Bakewell. We were doing the Monsal Trail and it was a beautiful walk, quite hard in places. Views of the river Wye and in the far distance we could just see Chatsworth House. The terrain was just lovely as we walked along the ridge, what we had thought an easy amble turned out to be quite a challenging walk! A memorable day.
