We are still in the Peaks district for this series – we are walking up Masson Hill, which behind the B&B. It was the day after our visit to Chatsworth, and the weather hasn’t really improved.
But we walked anyway. Matlock was free of snow by this stage, as the early views of the town atest.
But the snow was quite thick on the ground as we ascended further up the hill.
We walked over countless stiles and through many fields. The snow was two inches deep in places. Soon we were high up above Matlock.
