Bakewell in the Peak District and headed along the Monsal Trail aiming initially for Monsal Head. Once there, we took a few minutes to take in the spectacular view over the deep valley cut by the River Wye.
Magpie Mine; a lead mine that was worked until the 1950s. It is one of the more well-known lead mines in the Peak District. The Magpie Mine site is now cared for by the Peak District Mines Historical Society which exists to preserve these important industrial heritage sites.
I'd like to thank my new friends from the Yomping Mancs for their company and for organising this eye-opening walk.
