PEAK DISTRICT WEDDING
Last weekend I had the pleasure of capturing Miriam & Andy’s special day in the Peak District. This was the second time in 2 weeks that I had been up in the Peak District for a wedding. (lucky me) We had set aside some time to spend an hour or so at Curbar Edge, one of their favourite spots and boy was it worth it!! The views from up there were breathtaking. Whilst I sit here editing, I thought it would be nice to share a selection of my favourite shots from our time up on the edge.
A LITTLE BIT ABOUT CURBAR EDGE
This exhilarating Peak District walk starts at Curbar Gap and traverses Curbar and Froggatt Edge. There are over 200 rock-climbing routes on Curbar Edge some with names like ‘Profit of Doom Buttress’, which gives the non-climber an inkling into their difficulty. Marvel at the rock climbers as they hang onto the gritstone with just their fingertips. Later in the walk there is the unmistakable bulk of Froggatt Pinnacle before descending through Haywood down to the River Derwent.
The walk heads back along the beautiful Derwent valley and through the outskirts of Froggatt passing attractive riverside cottages before coming to the village of Calver. The large seven-storey mill at Calver was in the 1970’s used in the filming of the television series “Colditz”, it has now been converted to luxury apartments.
Parking is available at Curbar Gap and on a lay-by just outside Curbar. For the best views stick to the edge of the ridge, or you may follow the broader path set back from the edge.
