Crossing Sir William Hill Road and entering Eyam Moor.
Overlooking the Derwent Valley with Higger Tor in the distance.
Heather in bloom adding a splash of colour.
Wild flowers and Hathersage visible in the distance.
Passing Tor Farm we head toward Highlow Wood. A welcome bit of shade and some cooler air today.
Pleasantly cool down in the wood as we cross Highlow Brook. The gurgling waterfalls the only real noise.
Offerton Hall understood to have been built during the reign of Henry IV (1367 - 1413).
Crossing over Offerton Moor we needed to cross this small stretch of water called
Siney Snitch, assuming the sheep and her lamb would clear the walkway.
A victim of winter or a predator perhaps.
Cotton Grass on Abney Moor.
Abney Low from the footpath near Abney Grange.
Grange Farm, the footpath sign on the right just before the first building pointing the way forward for our walk today.
Foxglove flowers, the bee flew off just as I took this photograph.
Entering the western end of Bretton Clough. Strange peaks like extinct volcanoes rising up steeply.
This lamb obviously has good climbing skill to get on the top of the wall.
Thanks for visiting.
