Leaving the car heading up the short walk to Baslow Edge, here looking down towards Curbar.
The southern end of Curbar Edge from Baslow Edge
Calver from the viewpoint on Baslow Edge. Very easy to reach from the road.
As close as I dare get for this photo. Not typical of the Peak District.
More typical gritstone forming Baslow Edge and most of the other edges in the Peak District.
Baslow, from the Edge bearing its name.
Some rocks left precariously balancing on the edge probably from the ice age.
Chatsworth House and Estate from Baslow Edge.
Wellington's Monument on the southernmost part of Baslow edge.
More Highland Cattle and I got a little too close this time I think.
Trig point on the top of Birchen Edge. Good visibility today.
Nelson's Monument on Birchen edge. Behind are three large gritstone rock formations
each carved with the names of three fighting ships Victory, Defiance and Royal Sovereign.
Returning from Robin Hood reaching the top of the hill. Clouds building all the time now.
Returning to the start of the walk below Baslow Edge with Curbar Edge ahead.
Thanks for visiting.
