Peak Enjoyment

Nice day on the edge of the Peak District, on the sunniest day for some time.

Forecast said wall-to-wall sunshine, so decided to take the MX-5 for a bit of a run, in the general direction of the Peaks and Staffordshire Moorlands. Headed to Congleton and out on the A53 towards Buxton.

Enjoyed lunch at the Rose and Crown, Allgreave — sandwiches in the beer garden, with an excellent pint of Robinsons.

Cross country to pick up the A53 near Flash, then south to Leek, and on towards Rudyard Lake. Stopped to take in the steam trains, which are obviously a popular school holiday attraction, especially on a day like this.

Over the top and down toward Biddulph. Had a wander round Biddulph Grange Gardens, and enjoyed a Snugburys banana and toffee ice cream.

Home via Astbury, avoiding the centre of Congleton.

A great little outing, with some superb views in all directions at times.
