Sunrise Photography

Clive has arranged a super day out to close our summer events programme for this season, see below for details:

This is a suggestion for anyone interested in getting beautiful sunrise shots (weather permitting).  The location, Curbar Edge in Derbyshire, has a wonderful view over the Hope Valley and, if the conditions are right, the possibility of a covering of low mist covering the valley floor (see links below)

It would mean an early morning start from Bedford, followed by a good breakfast.  Afterwards one can do some further photography of the streams, Chatsworth House or Bakewell.

When:                        24th September 2018

Depart Bedford:      0430 hours

Arrive Curbar:          0655 hours.  This is the estimated sunrise time.

Details:                      Curbar Edge, Derbyshire.
Post code S32 3YR (approx. location only)
OS grid reference SK263747. Lat 53.268654 // Long -1.610125
Would recommend spending a couple of hours here before moving off for breakfast.

Breakfast:                 Grindleford Station Café.  This is about 15 minutes from Curbar Edge
Station Approach, Upper Padley, Hope Valley
Posy code S32 2JA
OS grid reference SK251787
When I last used this place the food was good and economical

Subsequently:          As already stated above, near the Café there is a walk up the valley with streams flowing, which, dependent on the amount of water, can be quite stunning.  Chatsworth House (Post code DE45 1PP) is nearby as is the town of Bakewell which are all good for photography

Admittedly it is a long day but the photography and scenery are well worth the effort.

We can arrange car sharing and I am willing to take my car.
