A Dull December Day in Chatsworth Park

With Christmas just a few days away we decided to go for a walk around and through Chatsworth Park. The weahter man had promised some sunny intervals but they never materialised and the whole for the 7 1/2 miles over the 4 hours it was VERY dull and cold

Stanton Moor comes into view, along with views down the Wye Valley.
