Wardlow Hay Cop and Cressbrook Dale
« on: 09:29:31, 12/05/18 »
Morning all.


We went for a short walk from Wardlow on Bank Holiday Monday to show my mum the wildflowers in and around Cressbrook Dale. We'd been there the week before and we were surprised how many more had appeared in a matter of just a few days - presumably the sunshine had given them a boost.  8)
