Weekend away

8 Nov 2019

For the last few years we've been on a farm weekend away, this year we were based in Hathersage and had fab time.

We walked along the top of Stanage Edge which was particularly spectacular with fog in the valley below us and even the cement works pouring steam up looked amazing.

While Sunday lunch was roasting in the oven (our own farm pork) we all had a walk down Padley Gorge.
