Passing under yet more bridges - this one carrying the A609 Derby road - we returned to Straws Bridge lake known locally as 'Swan Lake' and then back home for a hot cup of coffee.
Turning to head back home, we got the strangest feeling that we were being watched......!
Running everywhere along and around the trail are countless brooks and streams. Many of these are full of wildlife and even at this drab time of year there are still plants to be found, like this diminutive plant. Duck Weed is common enough but still looks good. More bridges criss-cross the path and make you wonder what the area must have been like when the heavy industry of the area was in full swing. It must have been a very different sight then.
