Walking Ladybower reservoir in the Peak District in Winter
The Peak District is so scenic, it really takes my breath away.
This is the second instalment of our walk above Ladybower reservoir, you can catch up with the first part if you missed it. The Peaks are wonderful all year round and offer something different in all seasons but always a good dose of fresh air. 

C pointed out this example of hedge-laying; I took a closer look and to my untrained eye it looked rather like each stem had been cut through too far, some only just clinging on by the skin of bark.

Part way up an ascent we came across a lovely little shelter which had a bench for weary walkers. There were some sweet little touches inside and this poem was on thee wall; it may well have been written just for me. Such a delight to read!

These sheep were such nosey girls! Want a photo? Psh.

The drystone walls are such a novelty as we have none at all nearby. They are such a wonderful thing to see, a tradition that is so important to the area. You can't beat seeing these walls up and down the countryide.

  3. Such lovely views in these photos Sophie, that sign you found is so sweet too. I never tire of seeing curious sheep around either. I must get across to the Peak District soon! - Tasha

  4. Beautiful! I love a bit of dry stone wall appreciation - there are some fine walls around! I did a dry stone walling course about 18 months ago which was brilliant!
