Cromford Canal walk

Today I decided to enjoy the sunshine and walked along the canal from Whatstandwell to Cromford. I think it’s about 4 miles and I had a little picnic halfway 🙂 It’s a very peaceful area, I could only hear the traffic and trains occasionally, and it’s very green and shady. The canal is disused so there’s lots of wildlife around, rustling in the reeds. I had a lovely walk along a nice route, there’s even a tunnel that’s just long enough to get fairly dark and sometimes the trees thin out to reveal views across the valley. Maybe next time I’ll get off the train a stop earlier and have a longer walk…
