An earlier than usual start meant that I didn't meet anyone walking through Chatsworth until I got to the Hunting Tower, which is unusual. With such good weather I decided to extend the walk and explored a tinder dry East Moor and yet again I took the wrong crossing across the brook and ended up doing a longer walk than I had intended.
