After Snowdonia we found that another interesting area is the Peak district. High moorland with unexpected colors.
Walking around in Peak district you find open landscapes with grasses, heather and ferns. Perhaps we were lucky to be there in September because the colors were fantastic.
Peak district is another place we can highly recommend for people who like nature and long walks.
Fly-tipping is a crime.
From the Peak district we went to Chatsworth house. We didn’t have enough time to visit the building, but we spend a long time looking around in the beautiful gardens.
One of the many statues that can be found in the Chatsworth house gardens.
Many steps form a long waterfall.
The garden contains a large collection of exotic plants and beautiful old trees like this one.
Fun for young and old is this maze.
A colorful spot with flowers.
A long rectangular lake with panoramic views over the surrounding landscape.
A famous fountain.
Following our visit to the gardens of Chatsworth house we still had some time to visit Arbor Low stone circle. This circle belongs to a farm, but visitors are welcome and donate a pound in the box at the entrance to the farm. Sheep and cows guard the ancient stones.
It’s already getting dark when we leave the stone circle of Arbor Low. We found a cheap hotel near Derby to spend the night.
