............Well it was FREAK Weather for a British Bank Holiday Weekend......the sun shone for four days, not a bit of rain, hardly any cloud and just a whiff of a breeze......that's pretty freaky for the UK!!

We camped in Edale in the Peak District National Park, a lovely little village with a gorgeous church, two pubs, a visitor centre, a National Trust Cafe, a Coffe Shop, Post Office cum Corner Shop and two Camp Sites. The Nags Head Pub at the top of the village marks the official start of The Pennine Way; a footpath that stretches for 267 miles to Kirk Yetholm in Scotland. We walked a small stretch of the footpath (obviously not to Scotland because we only had four days), the views in the area are stunning.

Our plan was to stay two nights but the weather and our surroundings were so beautiful that we decided to stay for three, we did quite a bit of walking and touring around some very impressive countryside and villages. We BBQ'd, ate Pub Food and Bakewell Tart purchased in Bakewell, drank lots of wine and beer, scared a few sheep and generally had a brilliant time.
