A Misty Start…. but at least some sun for a welcome change

A misty, but sunny start to this December day….  even though I had an early start, by the time I reached the Cromford Canal that mist had started to rise. Not that the mist completely disappeared, it just rose and formed a thin cloud layer above the tree level.  Being the day following the solstice the sun never climbed that high to reach the valley floor.  Still not a bad day for a canalside walk…. and after the recent rains it was just great to have a dry winter walk.

The building in the images above is of industrial heritage importance.  It is one of the first of the Railway buildings on the High Peak Railway, one of the earliest railways.  It is here that the Railway formed a link with the canal.

  Nor was I alone, being joined by a curious family of Mute Swans…. they seemed to want the company.

Over the day the cloud once again won out….. so no clear sky this evening,  once again we missed the Christmas Star…. maybe tomorrow

Please Remember ….

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