We spent a wonderful week in a cottage in the village of Cromford, just outside Matlock Bath. The cottage was on a farm in very peaceful surroundings. We explored the area and did several walks and a 10 mile bike ride. I rediscovered Derby as I went there to University, they now have a fantastic shopping centre, a big improvement on the previous one that it has replaced.
I got back on Saturday, and after a good bath and a change of clothes headed off to Till The Cows Come Home Festival 2008. Pete and Matt had arrived on Thursday and setup the show, I controlled the show for a lot of the night on Saturday, which finished at 6am. After some sleep and then the de-rig I was home by midday on Sunday, ready for yet another good long bath!
Next year I have a feeling the festival will be bigger and better, these small parties always grow, and this is a festy you should look out for, it has lots of potential.
I took some photos on my phone, they are ok, but not up to my usual standard.
