Today we took a walk from site to Winnats Pass, a steep, windy road about a mile away. It came to our attention when getting directions to the CC site as this was the one road to avoid!
The road itself was narrow in places, but so long as nothing was coming the other way you were probably ok with a motorhome but towing a caravan would have been a different matter. The verges were strewn with debris from vehicles that obviously didn’t make it, with old bumpers, number plates and wing mirrors knocking about.
Although the day was dry, the wind was still biting cold and snow still lingers in places. We were out for about two or three hours as we then walked back through Castleton via the entrance to Peak Cavern.
Tomorrow we’re off to the Lake District, but before we left one of Dean’s old army friends came to dinner. Mark drove over an hour to come and meet us and it was great to see him and catch up on what he’s up to.
