Hello. Welcome to foggy Cromford. I did a six mile walk today and couldn't see any nice views, just skeletal trees looming in the damp mist. There was a couple of high spots which would have been lovely if it was a clear day.
The Willersley Hall Hotel is right next to Cromford Mills, which was Richard Arkwrights first Mill complex. It is now a Unesco World Heritage site. Click on the link for the web site to tell you more. There are cafe's, retail shops, arts and crafts, vintage, flowers and plants, antiques, and conference facilities.
There is another web site here.
I spotted this display outside the Antique and Vintage shop. Glassware items which have been glued together and stuck on the end of a metal rod to put into the ground among the plants. Easy to make if you have a hot glue gun.
Time to have a walk along the canal. This is the Derwent Valley Heritage Way.
This is where I came off the canal and took a path to Holloway. It was time to start making my way back.
I have a very nice room on the second floor, dinner was served at 6.30pm and I had a lovely vegetarian meal, with fresh broccoli, salad and potatoes.
The clock is chiming 11.00pm so I'm off back to my room. Wifi is only available in the lounge, and I have to turn the light out when I leave. I think the staff have gone to bed, ha ha.
Catch you soon. Toodle pip.
