After my last two walks I decided that maybe it was time to listen to the doctor and give my ankles a chance to recover from Achilles Tendonitis. As this was my first walk in over a month and the first test for my ankles I wanted something that was both short and over easy terrain.

Setting out along the very quiet Bent Lane.

 

Stanton Moor Plantation

The views extend across Darley Dale to Stanton Moor Plantation.

 

Darley Dale

As I leave Bent Lane and head towards Hallmoor Wood the view across Darley Dale now includes a distant Riber Castle.

 

Hall Dale

Possibly the prettiest entrance to a public footpath I have seen.

Halldale Wood

The point at which Hall Dale becomes Halldale Wood.

 

Just to prove it.

 

Halldale Wood

A lovely spot for a seat. I sat here listening to the sound of Halldale Brook far below me. 

 

Halldale Brook

Halldale Brook.

 

I assume it's an old barn as there are no windows, but the chimney seems out of place.

 

Seventy Acre Plantation

It was in a nice location, with a view across Halldale Wood towards Seventy Acre Plantation.
