Wolfscote Dale

It is very easy walking through this partcular dale.

River Dove

The River Dove was flowing quite fast and was very mirky.

Coldeaton Bridge

At Coldeaton Bridge we left Wolfscote Dale to head up the unnamed dry dale to Lees Barn.

We took the track to the left of the wall and crossed back over to its other side further up the dale.

Lees Barn

From the Tissington Trail Lees Barn looks much larger than it did from the dale.
