A pleasant tour around Derbyshire

We had a great day on Thursday, touring Derbyshire with some friends. They picked us up and took us to some lovely spots. We started off at Crich Stand, an impressive memorial to those who have lost their lives in conflict. The views from the top of the tower were impressive, to say the least. We visited Chesterfield and went to the markets, as well as visiting the town's famous crooked spire. We had lunch in Bakewell, where I bought a Bakewell pudding to enjoy later. We stopped for an afternoon pint in picturesque Ashover.

We finished our day in a couple of local alehouses, The Hollybush in Makeney and The Dead Poets in Holbrook. After bidding farewell to our pals, Lynn and I walked the short distance home, slightly squiffy but very happy after spending the day with good friends.
