A wander with the camera: Millers’ Dale, Derbyshire

I went for a wander down Millers’ Dale with the camera today. It’s been nearly 20 years since I’ve been to this part of the Peak District. Last time, I visited the valley as part of the south to north backpack of the national park, starting in Ashbourne and ending in Crowden.

Little of what I saw today seemed that familiar, although I think the conversion of the old mill buildings to rather snazzy apartments threw me somewhat.

I was a great pleasure to return, though, and another chance to get to grips with the new camera. Click on the images if you want to see larger versions.

  1. Hi Terry,

    Thanks for the comment. I think Millers Dale was still wearing its drab early Spring coat so finding a bit of colour yesterday was a bit tricky. Hence the landscapes were a bit flat at that time of day.

    I’ve been to Monks Dale once… years ago. It’s a bit ‘wilder’… or a bit quieter at least, if memory serves. Given my dodgy back, these ambles along the Dales really welcome. I’d quite forgotten how lovely they are. I reckon I’ll be out again next weekend if the weather obliges.

  2. I’m looking forward to exploring Monks Dale, I must admit. If you told me a year or so ago how much joy I’d be getting from hikes in the White Peak I’d have laughed in your face! 🙂

    I have to admit, my ignorance is now vanquished and some of my most enjoyable hikes have been walking through, round and down into dales
