LATHKILL DALE

Way back when the children were small, and before we even moved to the East Midlands, we had a Peak District holiday in Buxton and during that week visited Lathkill Dale near Over Haddon.   I remember what a lovely dale it was to walk through, it having been gouged out of the Limestone surroundings by the little river of the same name. The water was very clear and in places small fish could be seen swimming about.

 

A recent T.V.programme suggests that over recent years various factors have caused this small river to dry up in places which is a problem local people are trying to solve.

What I most love about this image, Brian, is your word "dale" for it. Exactly what I expected a dale to look like!
Brian Walbey: WE have lots of Dales Ginnie, particularly in the Peak District area.
A well scanned picture Brian and worth the effort
Brian Walbey: Thanks Bill.

I think I saw that on TV Brian: let us hope they can solve the problem and get their nice river back
Brian Walbey: Yes I seem to recall the stream had almost disappeared in some sots.

A sad story throughout the country, Brian
Brian Walbey: It certainly is in some places although this has been ongoing for a long time and is more to do with the geology of the dale.

My type off place Brian looking forward to the rest.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Peter, somewhere further North tomorrow.
nice for a forest walk
Brian Walbey: yes it is one of the nicer dales Chantal.
Must have walked Lathkill Dale a dozen times over the years. It's a beautiful valley and yes, I can imagine, partly because of the geology, that holding onto diminishing river volumes there are problems.
Brian Walbey: We've only been that once Richard, but the programme suggested it is the geology that is the cause of the problem.
This is a cracker of a shot!!
nice spot!!
Brian Walbey: Yes a nice spot, thanks Rob.

Very tranquil and scenic Brian, lovely hue in this!
Brian Walbey: Yes it is Fred, we will have to find our way back there one day, we live a hundred miles nearer now than we did before.
A wonderful spot it was Brian. Great scannig job!
Brian Walbey: Thanks Richard, we ought to find time to go back, we live a 100 miles nearer these days.
looks like a magical place. a pity about the present issues.
Brian Walbey: It was very nice at the time Ayush and I'm sure it still is, but without such a good stream.
Beautiful place, and wonderful photo- I couldn't imaging this was an "old" photo that's been scanned!
Brian Walbey: It is indeed Elizabeth, and this would have been taken some time in the mid-80's I reckon.

... mid 80's... wow.
This is a wonderful place to be.
Wonderful picture.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Astrid. We ought to go back, we live a hundred miles nearer now than we did then.
What a wonderful spot...
Brian Walbey: Indeed, we thought it a lovely place to go.
