Reflections in Errwood Reservoir.
Errwood Hall the home of the Grimshawe
What I assume is the Grimshawe family's crest.
Walking below Foxlow Edge with The Tors ridge just visible to the left.
The Honeypot or Spanish Shrine.
Inside the chapel.
Kinder Scout is visible as we head towards Pym Chair.
A distant Mam Tor.
Looking across Foxlow Edge to Wild Moor.
The closest I've come to an inversion. If you

Cats Tor, with Windgather Rocks just visible behind.
Looking back along The Tors.
Stepping into Cheshire for this view of The Tors from Shining Tor.
Shining Tor's trig and the highest point of Cheshire.
Back into Derbyshire and walking along Stake Side, with Errwood Reservoir below.
Foxlow Edge (R) starts to glow as the sun descends.
