  9. Colours of Lee Farm

    23 Jun 2015
    After a long bleak winter, finally we have COLOUR!! It’s been quite a challenge creating colour in the garden; getting used to the high elevation, where few plants survive. If it’s not the weather, it’s the wildlife and live stock rampaging the garden who I battle with but this year…

  16. Snow in Upper Booth

    02 Feb 2015
    What a spectacular morning!  Mist rolling, tumbling even, down the hill sides.  I’ve never seen anything like it.  Driving around the Booths of Edale and up over Mam Tor to Castleton.

  17. Mole Catching

    14 Oct 2014
    Trundling along in the car on a beautiful autumnal morning from Bradwell in the Peak District to Tideswell we passed a rather unusual sight.  Hanging moles on a barbed wire fence.  This is a tradition from the Victorian era in order for the game keeper to get the correct payment…
