A rather last minute holiday to get away for a few nights. Our friends kindly agreed to come & cat sit at out house whilst we were away so Monday started with a socially distant run through of Max's routine & other useful things around the house then we went to dop the ferrets off for their own holiday at Three Shires!

We headed south along Fiddler's Elbow to Higger Tor then on to Burbage Bridge. We got slightly sidetracked scrambling over rocks & took a slightly convoluted route but ended up in the right place. After a short walk along the A6187 we headed back north along the edge of Burbage Moor. The clouds came in & drenched us with rain on this stretch which left us rather cold & soggy for the short drive across the peaks to our cottage near Chapel-en-le-Frith. The cottage was lovely & cosy! Wine & biscuits were provided as well as a basket of fire wood so we were able to dry
