Landmarks Buxton Crescent and the dome
Inside the dome, which is part of Derby University. It was the world's largest unsupported dome and has a HUGE pendulum suspended from the middle of it for this reason!
(You don't say!)
A strange... Err... Erm... Pfff... Duck?
Tiny ickle purple flowers
We stayed in a traditional stereo typical eccentric English hotel
The hotel room keyring was just one of the many peculiarities!
John after just 1/4 of a pint!
This one's for you Pat, you blog voyeur you!!! :0)
Roy - who later started on one of his many highly entertaining random stories about a house he's doing some work at that doesn't have a front door and the owners just appear out of a cupboard somewhere! WHAT??? LOL
Then visited the Otter, Owl and Wildlife park...
Then went 300ft down in the Blue John Cavern...
The guide was a typical northerner and very entertaining.
His best line was when he chipped off some quartz for an 8 year old boy and said, "Ere ya gor lad, you cun probableh trade this int' playground for sum fags" much to the horrified look on his mothers face! (Fags are cigarettes, for you Merkan readers out there :])
Then walked up Mam Tor...
A quick half-hour dognap at the top in the sun was called for :]
On Sunday, a mate and me went to the second highest pub in Britain, the 'Cat & Fiddle'.
We met up with fellow blogger Stu and his friend Helen to accompany them on an 8-mile that turned out to be 9-mile walk
DoGGa, Stu and the lovely Helen.
I don't have two peanuts stuck up my top... Honest guv!
Stu, it's not big or clever to see how many crisps you can stick in at once :]
Obligatory moon shot outside the pub infront of oncoming traffic including Stu and Helen departing! TeeHee :)
