This New Year’s Eve, we had a quiet night in to restore our batteries which meant that we could get up early and go walking in the Peak District. So we climbed Mam Tor for some of the best views in Derbyshire – what a brilliant way to see in the new year. It was a beautiful morning but unbelievably windy, a dog walker fell over and my friend told me that her dog almost blew away the day before (!)
Living in Sheffield, we are incredibly close to the Peak District, something that I really take for granted until I visit other cities, we’re very lucky. I grew up in Derbyshire, being ‘dragged’ on walks every weekend with my parents and sister. We used to pretend to hate it, but I look back on those Saturdays very fondly.
I have another loose new year’s resolution: to get out in to the Peak District more and make the most of what’s on our doorstep!
