Last week I spent some time in the Peak District. It was a new experience for me and now I see what everyone else sees there, amazing scenery, wonderful stately homes, history in abundance and last week especially, glorious weather. I am a Derbyshire convert, now I know how Elizabeth Bennet felt when she saw Darcy’s home and its setting in Pride and Prejudice. Do go if you get the chance and order the weather in advance!
