Valley of the Rocks
A return visit to Caffyns Farm campsite. We first camped at Caffyns two years ago when the owners were in the process of upgrading the facilities. The campsite is still a laid back, pitch where you want campsite, in a top location and of course they still allow campfires.
On top of that the newly refurbished Facilities are fab.
Oh, did I mention it's just a short run to the Valley of the Rocks
|A pair of Peregrines.|
The winged variety can be seen hunting in this area.
Not impressed with being tethered but rightfully proud of his tent fairy lights.

Chrome Hill fell race
Four miles up and over the loveliest hill in the White Peak. No Guinea Pig Derby this year, it was replaced with Duckling Races.
Even better than Duckling races was meeting up with David Ultra Running Collie Donaghue. Good to meet you at last UC.
