A Village Called Hope

2014-04-08 | Photography | Walking

I love to travel. In fact a lot of the time spent in my own country is whiled away dreaming about how I can be anywhere but my own country.

Which is ridiculous when there are places like the Peak District a mere train ride away from my doorstep. I visited this region of breathtaking mountainous beauty last autumn and was lucky enough to pass a couple of sunshine-filled days hiking through it. Albeit getting covered in mud and horrendously lost, but hiking nonetheless - and the leaves had just started to turn so the colour of the hillsides was truly stunning.

Staying in a picturesque little village called Hope with the Pennines-sweeping A road Snake Pass nearby, you wouldn't be a total chump to confuse this scene with something out of a bad fantasy novel. But I can assure you it was real, and pretty awesome.

It was a weekend of fantastic photographic opportunity and a reminder that there's no need to cross the oceans to find exciting lands to travel, when there's so much right here on our own little island.

Slip on a pair of wellies and visit Hope. I promise you will not be disappointed. There are some great online guides with more information at Visit Peak District , Peak District Online and Derbyshire UK.
