Peak District Scrambling – Red Brook Valley

We really wanted to experience the best of what the Peak District had to offer and decided that while staying at the Hayfield Caravanning and Camping site, we would head up to the highest point in the Peaks – Kinder Scout. After a bit of research to determine our route, we found the perfect one. This was a scramble up Red Brook Ravine, a good ascent between the River Kinder and the plateau above. This grade 1 scramble proved to…

We had only heard great things about the film studio over the past few years so Vicky was ecstatic to go. Just to get us in the mood for the experience and remind ourselves, we had watched all of the Harry potter movies in the month or so beforehand – I would…
