Tuesday evening and finally a break in the dull weather so I headed over to
Derwent Edge for the sunset. The 1 mile walk over the moor isn’t particularly
inspiring but as soon as you reach the end of the path the landscape opens up giving you a glorious view over Ladybower reservoir with far reaching views towards Bleaklow and Howden moors. Following the footpath up past
Whinstone Lee Tor you get to the Wheel Stones which was perfect for the sunset especially when you have a lovely carpet of heather for your foreground.
