The view of the edge improves as we get closer to the road.

Derwent Valley Way

From Calver we followed the Derwent Valley Way across fields.

River Derwent

The reflections in the Derwent grab my attention.

More reflections in the river.

Derwent Valley

As we head up Bar Road the sun lights up the fields around Baslow.

Gardom's Edge

The sun lights up the rocks on Gardom's Edge.

Chatsworth House

As we clear the trees on Bar Road we turned around to see Chatsworth House turning golden as the evening sun catches it.

Win Hill

As we reach the end of Baslow Edge the light is fading fast but the clouds mean the sunset isn't going to get any better than this tonight.
