We've been out and about a lot recently, but our poor dog, Dylan, has had to stay home, so, heading out to Derbyshire earlier this week, we were determined to find somewhere he could come too. After all, he's part of the family, and likes a day out exploring as much as we humans.
First we went to Lea Gardens - we knew they admitted dogs but we've not tried taking Dylan before. He seemed rather excited, hurrying along the paths that wind between the rhododendrons, azaleas and camellias - perhaps a little too quickly on some of the downward sections! But over all he behaved well, stayed on the paths (it's no fun having a dog decide to explore under bushes when you're holding the other end of the lead), and even agreed to take a short rest while I took photos.
Then we headed to a place he's visited before - Cromford and the canal-side walk from High Peak Junction workshops to the wharf by Arkwright's mill.

I'm not sure how interested he is in industrial heritage, but he enjoyed the walk!
