Due to a lack of precision in reading the web site we arrived at Peak Rail for the 1940s day an hour and a half before the gates opened. So casting around for somewhere to spend the time we spotted Monsal Dale on the map and, knowing it was supposed to be a local beauty spot, we decided to see for ourselves.
Monsal Dale is the part of the Wye valley in Derbyshire between Water cum Jolly dale and the foot of Taddington dale. Parking at Monsal Head we could see the aqueduct that once carried the Midland Red Railway Line, now converted to a cycleway, and a fine view with the river Wye flowing through the dale, so you do the natural thing and take some pictures. This is just one of them.
