The footpath takes us below Baslow Edge.
You can tell by the number of cars parked on the road that it has been a nice day.
No lambs yet in this part of the Peak District.
Not suprisingly the Derwent Valley Way follows the river Derwent.

Normally you can't stop them looking at you but now I want a photo for my coursework folder they decided tea was more important.

The light is starting to fade as we head across Eaglestone Flat.
In the distance a photographer was waiting with his tripod in the hope of a decent sunset, he was to be disappointed.
