A Quaint Little Peak District Village

Hi there

Welcome back to my blog... I was having a tidy up on my mac as I was running out of disk space, I had completely forgotten about these few photos I took on a summer jaunt yet somewhat unexpected... I'd been to an appointment in Ashbourne and decided that I'd like to visit a quaint village somewhere nearby and try and get some nice photos.  Where did I end up? Tissington, well known for it's gated entrance and well dressings.  I had missed the well dressings but the weather was very nice so I took advantage of that as I wandered around with my camera.  

The village of Tissington is home to Lord and Lady Fitzherbert who reside at the gorgeous Tissington Hall, a Jacobean manor house set in a 2000 acre estate.  The village itself is just lovely to walk around with plenty of public footpaths to explore. You can park and cycle, walk, go pony trekking on the Tissington Trail nearby.   There really isn't much I can say other than to visit the old house Sweet parlour situated on Chapel Lane, you will not be disappointed. Lastly, how could I forget, the ducks are very friendly! 

Here is a small collection of the photos taken in the couple of hours I spent in Tissington. Hope you like them.
