Hi Griff,

While you are in the area have a look at the Cavendish Hotel in Haversage, very good for a special meal or if you can afford it spend a night or two there. 

Tan & I have been there on a couple of occasions for anniversaries, never stopped but on the last occasion we were shown around one of the rooms by my cousin who used to be a Receptionist there, very nice but ouch!

Regards

Alan

Derbyshire isn't such a bad place. Chatsworth, for example, stunning. 

Lori, do you live in the Peak District Real National Park?

We live in chesterfield with the hills all around us , my favourite place is castleton & edale , you get such beautiful views up there,we don't actually live IN the peak district but we're just on the edge , i think it actually begins at about hathersage. Lori

Is that the rather nice place with the wonky church spire and where the inhabitants all speak with funny accents?

Met Fred once, he came to a local steam engine rally. He showed me & my wife great courtesy by doing us a decent brew as he explained the ins and outs of his engine. I often wonder if he had as much trouble understanding me as I did him. I like the warmth and down to earth nature of Northern Folk, and Fred was one of the best!

I've met a few from the other side too, apart from the terrible jokes they aren't a bad bunch!

Not sure whether it's a case of Northern men knowing how to treat their women or whether the women like mothering their menfolk, either way, an excellent culture, one to be encouraged!! Mixing with Northern anglers who's womenfolk keep them plied with sarnies & bevvies whilst they fish has hugely impressed me, obviously a sign of an excellent upbringing. Southern lasses please take note!
