Website update: June 2018

Many thanks for signing up to receive updates on my Goyt Valley website.  The last update went out at the end of last year. Here are a selection of posts since then. Click any heading to view. I hope you enjoy them.
Discovered: a lover's walk
In 1880 a writer described “a footpath high above the carriage-way… a lovers’ walk; a deep-green wooded way made for Phillida and Corydon”. I hadn't been certain where it was. But an old postcard revealed the answer. (Posted April 4th.)
New valley panorama
A newly-dicovered photo across the Goyt Valley dating back to the 1920s reveals some fascinating detail – Errwood Hall in the far distance and a possible ice cream kiosk beside Errwood Bridge. (Posted May 8th.)
Castedge spring; then & now
A new ‘then and now’ fade features one of my favourite photos of the Goyt Valley; Kathleen Nall collecting water at the natural spring outside her family home, Castedge Farm Cottage, which is now just a sad pile of stones. (Posted May 11th.)
Foxlow Edge walk video
It only took me a couple of years(!), but I've finally added the video for walk 17; a short, 1.5 mile circular stroll along Foxlow Edge, returning along the narrow footpath which runs between the ruins of Errwood Hall and St. Joseph’s Shrine. (Posted June 8th.)
Fernilee west walk video
Hot on the heels of the video for walk 17 comes the one for walk 18; a very easy 2.5 mile walk around the footpaths to the west of Fernilee Reservoir. There are some wonderful views from the upper section. And the return, shoreline path is always a joy. (Posted June 11th.)
