Although there are lots of bluebells in our local wood, we like to visit this very special bluebell wood near Lea Bridge at least once during the brief flowering season.
The walk starts by the old workshops at High Peak Junction on the Cromford Canal and goes up the hill through Lea Wood..
....winding past apple blossoms..
..and up through the bluebells..
even the path has bluebells growing in it!
...ever onwards and upwards...
..with more bluebells at each turn of the path..
The top of the hill at last and a brief pause before heading down to Cromford
past banks of wild garlic to the old wharf and walking bank along the canal
Last leg of the trip - crossing the Derwent back to the car park.
