From The Archives: Baslow

Baslow, and Baslow Nether End in particular, is a popular place for me to start and end walks. It's situated at the northern entrance to Chatsworth Park and it's the obvious place to finish a walk along the tops of the dramatic Eastern Edges. It's easy to reach from Sheffield, with two buses an hour and the journey only takes 45 minutes. There are public toilets at Nether End, and in my opinion the Café on the Green serves the best Bakewell pudding in the Peak District.

The photograph I've selected was taken next to one of the old quarries just above Baslow. I love Highland cattle; they are so docile...and love to be photographed, always posing for the camera.
