Yesterday was a beautiful day in Derbyshire. So Jane and I took a quick hop up the M1 to Hardwick Hall – one of my favourite National Trust properties. You can spend a whole day here, as there’s the Hall, Old Hall, gardens, walks around the estate and the tea rooms to keep you busy. Especially the tea rooms. We decided to do the Sculpture Trail (in blue) – around 2.5 miles. While the walks are all well signposted, the free leaflet is helpful too.
Followed by a walk around the Hall’s gardens.
And a doze in a thoughtfully provided deckchair.
I recorded over 16,000 steps even with the deckchair interlude, not to mention a quick blat in
brum gnu later.
If you’d like to sponsor me to walk all over cancer during September, my donations page is here. Thank you!
