I feel a bit like nearly every other walk I have done this year has been around Chatsworth. As this one was done for one of the magazines I write for, I had no choice but to return to the Chatsworth estate again. After all the recent good weather I thought I'd missed my opportunity to get some good autumnal pictures on this walk, I was wrong.

Approaching Stand Wood, with Longstone Edge on the horizon.
Reflections in Swiss Lake.
Christmas displays in the Stable Yard at Chatsworth.
Queen Mary's Bower. I was particularly
keen to look at this having recently read
The view from the Bower, of the River Derwent and Baslow Edge.
The house at Chatsworth is undercover as it undergoes some repairs.
Hunting Tower seen high above the main house.
Not a bad spot for my lunch.
The clouds must have gathered whilst I was
eating as by
Heading towards Beeley with a view of Burnt Wood.
