County walk: Min­ninglow

Derbyshire Life - - News - WORDS AND PHO­TOS: Sally Mosley

Cross a the­atri­cal land­scape etched by an­cient track­ways over­looked by a halo of windswept trees on this lovely win­ter walk

hill­top sum­mit of Min­ninglow with its iconic clus­ter of ma­ture beech trees sur­rounded by an ar­bo­real halo. See also the ex­ten­sive dark grey wall stretched out be­neath it. This is an im­pres­sive em­bank­ment struc­ture cre­ated in 1831 to sup­port one of the first rail­way lines in the world. Peep­ing over the side of the hill are the out­stretched fingers of a wind tur­bine on Cars­ing­ton Pas­tures.
