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.
