A Day Out in Derbyshire Part 3: Ashford in the Water and Monsal Dale

Leaving Ashbourne laden down with secondhand books (Dad and I are bad influences on each other when it comes to charity shops), we continued our adventure by searching out the house Dad was evacuated to as a baby. Several other houses in Ashford-in-the-Water have family connections, and while tracking them all down I came across the sort of cows I thought only existed in 18th Century paintings.

Aren't they smashing?

Having also photographed the house, we decided to travel home by the windingest route possible, which brought us to Monsal Head. The car park was full, but Dad dropped me off so I could take a few photos of the Dale and the pub.

Isn't it all pretty?

Full set of photos starts here, and after all that excitement we went home, and ate strawberries with Bradwell’s Ice Cream.

In other news, I now have my postcards and revamped business cards in time for the UK Meet.
