Peak District – a ramble in the English countryside photo story

Chatsworth House – the Duke of Devonshires country house   

The well maintained gardens of the house.
  

The imposing grandeur  

A play at the village of Eyam, the villagers enacting the story of the bubonic plague in the village.
  

Churches around the countryside have cemeteries within their boundaries. Local residents final resting place.

  

Pretty house front at a village in Peak District.
  

Village pubs with locals and tourists dining side by side.  

Crossing a stream during a hike near the farmhouse where we stayed.
  

Yes the wildflowers are pretty as can be.

  

Stone walls separating sheep farms with stinging nettles growing by the side.
  

A view of the rolling hills and typical gray skies.

  

A long hike to the hill top.

Sheep grazing in the meadows.  

  

A lonely path by a ruined Norman castle.
  

A just reward at the end of a day’s hike.
