We met at Rudyard Station on the miniature railway
Noting the information display
we set off beside the railway track
We soon reached the dam
where we took the bridge across the lake
The lake was as smooth as glass on this fine sunny morning
We passed the pottery display case which strangely hung out of place in the trees
and the holiday cottages perched on the hillside.
We are given a ‘bleating’ welcome by the weary goats
as we rise above the lake
before passing what was once the local YHA.
We take our break on the bridge across the stream that feeds the lake
at the far end.
On our way back we pass a leaf strewn stream
which is full of frogs
The geese lazily drift in the sun
as we leisurely make our way back.
before my wife and I enjoy a well-earned carvery at the Rudyard Hotel on this fine sunny morning
