Fishink Travels in the Peak District Part 1

July 8, 2019

Hello everyone and a happy Monday to one and all. We managed to escape for a very fleeting break to the Peak District last Wednesday and Thursday.

Just an over night camping (above) in a quiet site not far from Litton and Tideswell. It was pretty warm for the time we were away, but the slight breeze made it so much easier to be outdoors all day. Boo loved all the countryside sounds and smells.

Refreshing to see so many wildflowers along our walks.

The pathways and surroundings were beautiful. I even discovered a lost fairy, perhaps she was looking after the place !

Boo usually led the way.

The cows had found a small overgrown stream to cool their feet in, and Boo also did the same.

Great variety of buildings, some must be pretty old.

The church of St John The Baptist at Tideswell was open, so I took a moment to admire both the outside and then the inside.

It has quite a stunning interior. Full of intricate wood and stone carvings.

The tomb of Sir Thurstan de Bower and Lady Margaret was reconstructed by the sculptor Thomas Earp of London.

Great to see there’s a couple of play areas for children, to keep them amused during sermons.

These stunning collages also caught my attention. Depicting work, leisure, community and environment they illustrate some important messages about how we live our lives today.

A great idea and using mixed media too. Nicely done.

Part two of our travels later in the week. I hope you’ve enjoyed joining us on our trip.
