Cascades in Padley Gorge…


Autumn in Padley Gorge

There has been some rain over the past few weeks, so I guess Padley Gorge will be looking its best. Whist it looks like a rather wild stretch of water, this is Burbage Brook,  just one of  many minor tributaries that feed  Derbyshires River Derwent.

We are keeping our fingers crossed.  This time last November it was the start of  severe flooding down the Derwent Valley.  Waters receded a little prior to Christmas, then returned with a vengeance in January and February….. as I say fingers crossed  – we don’t want a rerun.

Please Remember ….

Stay Safe …. Be Kind…. Look After Each Other

    1. The rich reddy brown is water, coloured from the Peat Moors on the hills above. Clear for most of the time, then after heavy rains that colour flows down stream….and in a dark wood you get some lucky gaps that act like a trap door for the sky and a searchlights for the sun. Right time right place for once
