Road trip

Decided today to go to Matlock on the bus. First we awoke to this…

Very frosty pontoon.

Lovely clear sky hence sharp frost. This is by the bus stop to Derby.

We had 45mins to spare before we got the bus to Matlock from Derby. So we walked along the river.

This weir was very fast flowing and it was producing electricity. Note Derby cathedral in the background.

The journey to Matlock took 1hr 30mins approx. Matlock is the county town of Derbyshire. lovely scenery as we went through the Peak District.
Matlock had a Victorian fair this weekend which was incredibly busy, and difficult to see all the stalls.

Food stall area.

Fairground organ

Clock tower bandstand in Hall Leys park.

Lovely clear signs in the town.

We got back to Derby around 4ish so saw their Christmas lights which were quite impressive.
We hope next week to go to Bakewell to sample the pudding and tarts!
