This is another pic of Bradbourne Ford - my mum stalled my dad's car when she was learning to drive - it's never been forgotten but begs the question as to why he thought driving through a ford was a good idea for a learner driver?? Maybe a rites of passage thing for Vauxhall Viva drivers!
This is a pretty little valley running alongside the road to Fenny Bentley.
This is a picture of Minninglow in the distance taken from up above Bradbourne Ford towards Tissington.
This is the screen from motionbased - I'm sure it did not take 5 hours plus - was more like 4.5hrs including stops to take pics, change mp3 player etc.
First pic I took was from Mappleton looking towards Thorpe Cloud.
This pic was taken from up the hill from Bradbourne Ford looking towards Fenny Bentley I think.
This pic of village of Thorpe with Thorpe Cloud in background was taken from the killer hill out of Mappleton that I've taken to walking up!
This pic of a cheap tractor (according to Phil, apologies if it's your tractor!) going through Bradbourne Ford (we used to know it as Tissington Ford but Tissington's a couple of miles further on really).
This is me at top of hill before you drop down to the ford, yes I know I'm carrying too much weight but by gad, am happy with things at the moment.
This is a pic of Minninglow in the distance taken from the lane between Knivetonwood and Kniveton.
This pic has Thorpe Cloud in the distance as was taken about a mile from finishing the run. It's taken from the hill between Snelston and Clifton.
This picture is of Osmaston Village Hall, when I got married a million years ago we had the night do here! Cool eh!
Between Moorend and the Osmaston junction on the A52 is JCB's proving ground. I do like what they've called it - the Proving Ground, says all you need to know about JCBs, shame they're struggling at the moment.
In the background is a tractor which a chap I used to drink with up at the Cock Inn is driving: Les Bull. Top man.
