Wandering in the Peaks

A weekend away in the Peak District with a great bunch of friends and some sunshine – what could be better? Not a lot! We went on two walks: on the Saturday a wander up to Solomon’s Temple with great views over Buxton, and on the Sunday a march from Bakewell up to Over Haddon …
