Part of the Ilkeston Cam "Days Out" Series

Derbyshire Delights
w/e 03 May 2020
All of this week's pictures were taken with various Kodak cameras

With the coronavirus lockdown continuing, trips out to local attractions are still not possible and although the Peak District is not too far away there are other delightful places in Derbyshire too. Looking back over the previous twenty years or so, I've selected just a few images from both the Peak District and also closer to home, taken at various times during those twenty years for this retrospective view of the area.

Lea Gardens

Lea Gardens, famous for rhododendrons, in May 2001.

Ogston Reservoir

Alport Heights

Tapton Lock

River Derwent

Looking back at the images above, I've just realised that four out of the ten were taken in the month of October but any time of year is good to visit these delightful places in Derbyshire. Now all we need is for the lockdown restrictions to be removed or at least relaxed before October 2020 because wherever or whenever you go, in the Peak District or out of it, you'll find that Derbyshire delights!
