For anyone who may have forgotten what sweet peas look like.

 Something quite bleak & desolate about this one, me thinks.

Morning, Frank

Yes, I've heard you speak fondly of your's & Joan's affection for Chatsworth.

I'm looking forward to my visit because (like you both) I love the place too.

Bakewell is probably better (like most places) enjoyed in the summer. Although, my visit  does coincide with market day, which is always worth a look around.

Nice to hear you have pleasant memories of my patch, Will ...I understand your journey well, with 'The Ash Tree' the next favourite stop-off for boats after 'The Plum Pudding' (heading north).

My own personal pleasure is to be living close to 'Cannock Chase'....a place of outstanding natural beauty.

pansyface - Just in case you thought I was some sad individual who roamed around the countryside taking pictures of road signs. It was in fact this beautiful honeysuckle that had taken-up residence at this road junction that was the object of my attention....in this instance, It just fitted the bill inasmuch as it signposted Abbots Bromley.

Ah, good! It all seemed a bit chaotic when I was last there.

This visit is purely for Chatsworth House itself and the Christmas theme...I have no prior knowledge of a market on that day.

Good luck with the traffic if you are heading to the Christmas market thingy at Chatsworth.

Earlier in the year when visited Bakewell there was a sizeable delay on the descent from the Monyash road into Bakewell...road works I understood.  I was hoping that would be finished now.
