Another day, another canal

We seem to have our fair share, if not more, of industrial heritage in Derbyshire, and so often industry goes hand-in-hand with canals, so here I am again walking alongside another - an old favourite at Cromford.

There's lots to be seen and explored at Cromford - Arkwright's mill complex which started the industrial revolution, and the village built to house the workers, the workshops at High Peak Junction,  the surrounding hills which in Spring are carpeted with bluebells or take a leisurely cruise in a restored barge - but this was a lazy day, with our grandson along in his buggy, so we settled for lunch at the Wharf, a gentle stroll from Cromford to High Peak Junction, and a gentler one back for cake.
