Hi all, just a few photos from the end of a walk from the other day, these were from on the Roaches, Derbyshire. (Edit - did I say Derbyshire? I mean Staffordshire, bottom of the Peak District )
full gallery can be found here The Roaches Walk
Ahh, thanks AShley, we started out from Ramshaw rocks, headed down into the Dane valley, following the river for a while, then up to The Hanging Rock, Luds Church, the Roaches and (Hen Cloud - Hen Cloud and the rest of the walk back to the car was in the dark. ) so we were in Staffordshire the whole time by the sound of it then.
I particularly liked the top one - the thumbnail didn't do it much justice though.
It's surprisingly wild round there, considering that it not actually that remote.
Allegedly it's called Flash due to the counterfeit (flash) money that the local women made using button presses in years gone by, dodging the law by skipping across county boundaries at Three Shires Head. The proper name for the village was Quarnford, but everyone calls it Flash.
That many of my ancestors are buried in the churchyard there may come as no surprise to a few who know me
Fascinating factoids there Milly. I went once to the pub in Flash, it was like being in someone's living room. Very friendly.
Try the "Stanley Arms Hotel" in Wildboarclough for excellent food (and well kept ales).
