Big Trip Review pt.4 - Bakewell
Over New Year we spent a week near Bakewell in the Peak District with the friends I loosley refer to as "the Sheffield crowd", some of whom I was at uni with back in more innocent times. These days it's all toddlers and mortgages, but times change and we must change with them I suppose.
The cottages had an indoor pool and a ping-pong table which kept us occupied - Frances beat me at ping-pong which wouldn't be emabarassing but for the fact that she was 8 months pregnant at the time. We did manage a few trips to local attractions such as a pub in Bakewell and, er, a pub in Monyash. As you can see from the photo, we also braved the extreme cold to enjoy some of the lovely countryside in the area.
Unfortunately we brought the nanovirus with us and it made the rounds of all of our party during the course of the week. I don't think that it stopped anyone enjoying their week, though, judging by the bottle-filled recycling bins at the end of the week.
