Coffee Lunch Tea Dinner
  Old Crown, Shardlow Pavillion, Buxton  

Lunch was en route at a 17th Century pub Old Crown, Cavendish Bridge at Shardlow in Deryshire. The bar  is packed with bric-a-brac, including hundreds of jugs and mugs hanging from the beamed ceiling, brewery and railway memorabilia, and lots of pictures. It's  next to the River Trent and was once the deportation point for convicts bound for the colonies.

We then went on to Buxton via Dovedale

Peak Hills.jpg (4212 bytes) Green hills! Very different from flat Michigan. The whole country is rolly so the views go on for miles
Judy hills.jpg (5170 bytes) John caught me deep in thought gazing at the countryside.

sheep up hill.jpg (7157 bytes) This photo doesn't do it justice but private owners graze the sheep in this national area. The sheep seem to hang on the sides of the steep hills.
