    Is it me or am I bieng completely incabable of finding ANYTHING on this Nature Nature reserve?

    I remember finding something on it not long after I took it.

    I'm still on the case Hamish not to worry.

    Here are some map piccies of my phone.

    As you can see, it's called 'The Delf' by philip's street atlas

    but thats not the 'stunning' part of the Delf... it's towards the back of that reserve.

    Has anyone else got any ideas, links, memories, of this place???

    Aha!!!!!

    Right, just found out a bit more.

    There is a good chunk of history at this place in the delf, including the nearby village Eyam

    There's a few caves that where great to rumage through. not big, but never the less very exciting
    They called it the Cucklet Church where it was once a places of worship high in the fresh air to avoid the plague.

    Here is short a youtube video

    Cucklet Church, Eyam - YouTube

    Down the bottom there is where my shot was taken.

    I can see where the GPS units for cameras would be handy for these situations. The expense is a bit overboard though.

    I have a gps app for my phone for just such situations.
    I don't use it a lot mind, as it tends to dry up the phone battery fairly quickly.
