It was the late 1980's I saw the lights.
We had gone to the Peak District for a weekend event only to find that the organisers had confused the dates and the date for the event at the conference centre was the following weekend. So over 100 people travelled from all over the country for a non event. However we decided to find somewhere to stay and explore the Peak District over the weekend especially as we couldn't come back the next weekend.
We liked what we saw and returned the following summer and for many years on and off afterwards. From the ashes of disaster rose years of enjoyment.
