Tissington Trail

Heading south along the Tissington Trail, which is somewhat unusual
for me as I'm normally heading north when I walk along here.

Tissington Trail

Despite appearances the trail was very busy with families making the most of the sunshine and the school holidays.

After leaving the Tissington Trail my route took me across fields to Fenny Bentley.

My route took me across this delightful little footbridge.

Dropping down into Fenny Bentley and the views were extensive and include most of my return route

Bank Top

Across the valley Bank Top is visible.

Fenny Bentley's church

I cut through the churchyard.

My only company after leaving the Tissington Trail was sheep, lambs and cows.

After passing Lees Farm my route took me through fields and by this unnamed wood.
