December 13th 2007 after two nights of low temperature
the ground is frozen hard and a white frost has settled on
the grass. There is little warmth in the sun during the day
but it's great for walking, and with the clear air the views
extend for miles from the high ground of Longstone Edge

Looking back to Great Longstone the frost and cold
air settle on the lower ground.

Old Farm Buildings Being Renovated
2007 November The weather is fine and mild so I took
the opportunity to go for several walks around the local
area. Here are some of the photos that I took over the last
few days of the Great Longstone area of the Peak District National Park.

Easter weekend and thousands of visitors will be
coming to the peak district national park,but just
below the top of Longstone Edge I met only four
people in two hours.

It's a mystery how the gorse bushes thrive on the

stoney south facing Longstone Edge.

The gorse bushes are in bloom in the spring sunshine.

March 2007. The weather is warming up, the grass
is starting to grow and the daffodils are coming into
bloom.The village of Great Longstone is just the same
as always, nestling below Longstone Edge.

Feemouth Yard. A footpath to the church passes through

this pleasant area from the centre of the village.
