Another Peak District Circle

We went on a walk
I've looked for nice photos and failed.
But S did take this of our fridge (the week after)

We had been to the Farmers Market in Bakewell.
A rare thing - a Farmers Market where you can shop for food and avoid supermarkets.
They have virtually everything we need and lots of things I desire.

A Sheffield Ramble

In which we went for a walk without any assisted transport, I muse on old routes and whinge about technology.

Up to Lodge Moor by bus and then out around Redmires Reservoir>Stannage>Hathersage etc etc is a firm favourite but today it became our destination.
The climb up to Lodge Moor, mostly Tom Lane, has got to be an old route.
The obvious continuous route and the collection of old houses all the way up must be significant.
But it's too straight and steep to be a coach road.
So I'm thinking packhorses and jaggers.

The GPS failed before the end.
(BTW to prevent you sneaking into Shed Zero and killing us in our beds I started the GPS after we'd left - clever stuff eh?)

Lunch pictured above was cold bbq ribs, spinach pie and aubergine rolls.

Testify Your Mental Capacity

This was the venue for my Mental Capacity Act roadshow. There is some significant irony in this. I get to lecture people about having capacity to make decisions when I can't decide what to have for lunch.
And they let me do it in a church!
Sometimes life gets well weird.
