Walked: 16 Feb 2008
Park at the Ferrer's Centre car park, walk through to Dimminsdale and enjoy the snowdrops (if it's February), to Melbourne, Ticknall and back to start.
This was meant to be a warm-up for a longer walk the next day, but the weather was so gorgeous that it grew to 9 miles. We've had a high pressure over us for a week or so now, which means lovely sunny still days and cold clear nights.
The spectacular annual display of snowdrops at Dimminsdale Nature Reserve looked even more amazing in the bright sunshine.
This was the best surprise today, I'd never used this path (head on past Scotland's Farm for a bit and off to the left towards Melbourne). The view here is stunning.
