I was in Bakewell and had half an hour to spare
so I got my camera and walked along the river.
The pictures are not very original but they show
the amount of bird life on the river in the Autumn

Today I decided to walk from home through the fields to
Monsal Head [about 1/2 mile] when I arrived there wasn't many
vistors so I decended into the dale by the top path.

After a dry summer there wasn't a lot of water in the river,
but the weir still looked great.

At 2pm 15th July 2006 Cressbrook band led the procession at the start
of Great Longstone Church Fete. The band and the new

The Queen and the band then went up to the school where Megan
