Peveril Castle, Peak District

Last month, Aneurin and I made an impromptu visit to Peak District. We were camping in a lovely campsite near Buxton, and Bakewell just 15 minutes drive away. We spent the first day visiting Bakewell for late breakfast, setting up our temporary home, and searching to buy camping hook up plug so that we could have coffee in the mornings!

In second day, we found out how unfit we were by walking up a very steep hill to Peveril Castle in the village of Castleton, but the beautiful views we got in the end was definitely worth it. We then visited Eyam, a ‘plague village’ that went into voluntary quarantine, and because of that it is one of best-preserved villages in the area. We also went to beautiful Eyam Hall and its gardens.

I took so many photos they will be distributed in next few posts. Next time, I’ll tell you about our Mam Tor circular walk, naturally with more landscape photos featuring some cute sheep I met along the way!
