Moscar - Rowsley (The Last Part)

As promised here are the rest of the pictures of my last walk through Chatsworth Estate to my destination at Rowsley. First of all thought here is a link to Chatsworth so you can get more info on the place if you wish.

The first picture shows the cricket field and pavilion in Chatsworth Park, when I was a garden boy and learning my trade one of my jobs after I'd been there a few years was to be sent down here once a week through the summer to mow the grass. You can't tell from the picture but the pavilion has a thatched roof.

In this next picture you will see Queen Mary's Bower, for more about this go to the link above as really I'm no history teacher so you're best to learn about it from someone who knows what they're talking about.

I include this next picture simply because in the far distance you can just make out the Village of Beeley which is where my dad's side of the family come from. I never actually lived there myself, when I was born we lived up on the hill you can see behind the village. I did go to Beeley school though so from age of five I used to walk from home down through the woods and fields you can see on the hillside behind the village every morning and then back again in the evening.

After a year at Beeley school part of our house blew down one night in a storm and we had to move out to a place in the Village of Rowsley which is only a mile from Beeley. So really Rowsley is my home and my parents still live in the house I grew up in and that is where I was headed this day. Here you see the route by the River Derwent just a short distance before it enters the village.

This is my parents house and where I lived from the age of seven, this picture was not taken on the day though and is one from a while ago.

wondering how long a walk this is Bob.

What a pretty escape for however long you were able to linger about in the woods and fields.

Wish I had more time for that, oh how I love to walk in the natural beauty!
