Chatsworth Thursday 6th February 2020

With a dry and sunny day forecast we decided to head out for a walk around the Chatsworth estate. John has done this walk just before Christmas but I hadn't been able to join him as my grandson's stocking needed finishing in time for Santa's first visit. We took advantage of the free parking that was on offer at Calton Lees to encourage people to explore the grounds of Chatsworth whilst the house was shut for winter. Unfortunately shortly after setting off we discovered that I had failed to put the memory card back in my camera so the limited photos I did take are taken with my phone, which I very rarely use for taking photographs with.
