Adventures Up North Part Three

Before heading back down south, following my Derbyshire adventures of the weekend before last, I took a walk down through the village to record as many important buildings and landmarks as possible.


Starting with the Catholic Church and the priest's house:
Bamford Walk 300314 (1) Bamford Walk 300314 (3)


Walking down past the Anglers' Rest community pub towards the Methodist Chapel and the old school:
Bamford Walk 300314 (4) Bamford Walk 300314 (5) Bamford Walk 300314 (7)


Which is across the road from the Village Institute:
Bamford Walk 300314 (10)


Walking back up round the back of the chapel, we pass the primary school:
Bamford Walk 300314 (11) Bamford Walk 300314 (13)


Then down the main road between the dentist's surgery, which used to be Hancock's shop, and the Derwent which used to be another pub, but is now self-catering accomodation:
Bamford Walk 300314 (16) Bamford Walk 300314 (14)


Further along we pass the little bakery that used to be a butcher's shop, and across the road, there's the main church for the village, with the village War Memorial:
Bamford Walk 300314 (20) Bamford Walk 300314 (23) Bamford Walk 300314 (24)


Down at the bottom of the village is the recreation ground with a view over to the Shatton television mast:
Bamford Walk 300314 (27) Bamford Walk 300314 (28)


And I just had enough charge left in my batteries to take a couple of pictures of the River Derwent at the old mill on my way back:
Bamford Walk 300314 (30) Bamford Walk 300314 (32)


One more post to come from that trip, in which I show off an attic find that managed to lose itself again for nearly three decades before reappearing in Mum and Dad's loft very recently.
