Andrew and Ali planned an excellent route. The route took us out of Litton along church lane to Tideswell. From slancote lane we walked along to Monks dale and followed the limestone way towards Wormhill. From here we dropped down into Millers dale there was a lot of water and the main path was under water.
Conveniently, at Millers Dale railway station the rain eased and we sat on the benches to eat our sandwiches and the last of the Christmas cake. Hot ribena restored some warmth to us.
We continued along the Monsal trail until Litton mill where we joined the path to Tideswell dale. There was much entertainment trees decorated with baubles and a cave explored a little way by Hugh and myself. Thanks to a head torch from Louis, Hugh and myself ventured along. Further along the trail some signs had been altered both Keisha and Louis find this highly amusing and were giggling their way along the path.
