April 22nd – The long Good Friday.
Another big panorama image, about a mile further into the Manifold Valley. The road descends nerve-wrackingly to a 90 degree righthand bend through a farmyard, otherwise known as Throwley. Nearby, the ruins of Throwley Hall are preserved. Few really seem to come here, and it’s why I love the area so much – there’s unexpected delight in every turn.
Further down the valley, people throng at Dovedale and Milldale, yet seldom stray up the hill. Their loss.
