After a long day Friday of touring Chatsworth House, Saturday Brian took me to the village of Bakewell. A busy, but quaint English village. It was raining in the morning so we went a later than we had planned. By the time we left the rain had cleared, but it was still cold and windy, typical English weather so I’m told. Thankfully the sun began to shine later in the afternoon and it turned into a really pleasant day.
We walked around Bakewell, enjoyed jacket potatoes (baked potatoes) topped with coronation chicken (something similar to chicken salad) and a side salad garnish (without dressing) at a little coffee shop called the Bean and Bag, then walked up a very steep hill to the All Saints Church.
All Saints Church overlooks the city centre (center) and although not the original building, the foundation dates back to the 900’s! Parts of the current structure was built in the 13th & 14th century and it is still an active church today.
Then he drove me up to the cliffs above the college, Baslow’s Edge. This wasn’t a planned excursion, so I ended up walking from way down there (down where the cars are parked on the side of the road-click on the picture and you can see them better).
Yep, the train stop is just a platform.
Living thru faith,
