A day out to Bakewell........................................................................................

We had a drive out to visit the lovely little town of Bakewell yesterday.
It's only about 45 miles away but I haven't been for years.
The river that runs through the town is quite shallow and full of trout.

People feed the ducks and geese and it's fun to watch as the fish snatch the bread before the birds get to it.

Bakewell is the home of the famous Bakewell Pudding... and this shop also sold some wonderful bread and local cheeses... we treated ourselves and had a great supper last night.
A nice relaxing day... and the weather was fantastic.

Nice place! The river looks similar to some here...shallow and popular with the anglers.

Is the Bakewell pudding another name for the Bakewell tart? If so I'll have half a dozen please.

Andrew, my favourite shop of all time is in Bakewell, tucked away in a little courtyard, called the Wee Dram (a Whiskey lovers sweet shop).
