Road Trip!

Tissington Hall

Edward & Vintage Shop

Cromford Mill

We decided today was the day to head out in the car and to visit a few places on my wish list.

First we visited Cromford Mill near Matlock, I was a little unsure what to make of this place, very interesting about the history, but not a museum. A few of the shops were a little tired in there choice of stock. The antiques shop was great though and very reasonably priced.

Next on the list was Tissington near Ashbourne. I absolutely fell in love with this place, the buildings and peace & quiet were amazing. I also loved the fact that a lot of the houses had honesty boxes outside the front where they sold excess fruit, veg, flowers, eggs and Jams & Pickles. Also a major attraction there was a great sweet shop that a spotted on someones blog.

We managed to pick up some great local produce alon the way, flowers, cheese, butter, sausages and black pudding.
