Well it has Rained….



Burbage Brook, Derbyshire

Brown peat coloured waters swell the usually more placid Burbage Brook as it tumbles down the Oak and Beech lined Padley Gorge, now standing bare after the Autumn winds.


Padley Gorge

Yet on the moors above, where all this water originates, whilst wintery in appearance looks all calm and tranquil.  It cannot be long before the bracken will be covered in winters snow.
