Something tells me this is going to be a little different to my normal walks.

Breadsall Moor

I assume that before the golf course was extended across the road this looked a little more like a moor than it currently does.

Drum Hill

I am actually heading down Drum Hill at the moment!

Centenary Way

I leave the Centenary Way to head through Horsley Carr.

Morleymoor Farm

Yes it's a field, but its a very significant field, because it's where I got the phone call to say my daughter had passed her math's GCSE on her fourth attempt. So it definitely deserves a place on my website.


I didn't know we had places this flat in Derbyshire.
