A walk around Lyme Park

We met at Nelson Pit on Monday morning, just after the clocks had changed. What a beautiful morning it was, not a cloud to be seen.

We headed off along the canal

It is worth a closer look. The time of this photo was 11.41am. Not bad, I wonder what they did about the clocks changing last night!
