Peak District: Froggatt Edge

After we’d finished looking around Chatsworth House we decided to take a little drive to a beauty spot called Froggatt Edge.

You know the bit in Pride and Prejudice (the film, not BBC drama) where Keira Knightley stands on a rocky outcrop staring moodily into the distance while her skirts billow around her? We thought that Froggatt was the place where they filmed it, but it turns out it wasn’t (sorry Naomi but it’s true!). It didn’t really matter because it looks very similar and it was BEAUTIFUL.
The sun came out and the view was amazing! A perfect day for pretending to be Elizabeth Bennett.

We were pretty tired after a whole day on our feet but I’m glad we made the effort to go for this walk. It was a perfect end to the day.

When we got back to the car we saw two beautiful Red Deer stags just to top it all off. Lovely.
