Yesterday morning was for a sunrise at Winnats Pass, however, the bank of cloud on the horizon meant that the sun was nowhere to be seen. We (Great Lux and Chris Nowell Photography) head over to Outseats that lies beneath the mighty Stanage and took in the wonderful deep and textured view in front of us... and with Chriss inspiration the gate was included in our shots.  📷 Read about all of our photography ambassadors here: https://letsgopeakdistrict.co.uk/peak-district-views/ all of them have utter passion for the Peak District and it shows through all of their work. ❤️📷❤️📷❤️

visiting chatsworth has been one of the wifes loves in life .

The best thing to do is park at Calton Lees. It’s only £3 and there is a free shuttle bus direct to the market.

The Chatsworth Christmas Market is now in full swing! Have you been yet? Although access to the car park is restricted because of flooding, the Market is still very much open for business and the stallholders would LOVE your support!  Tickets to see the beautifully decorated house, which includes access to the Market, are available via the Chatsworth website. Access is also available for Gold and Silver Friends of Chatsworth and those with a booking at one of the restaurants.  For everyone else, you can still go to the Chatsworth Christmas Market by bus or on foot. It’s a lovely walk from Baslow, Edensor or Calton Lees. Why not wrap up warm and make a day of it?  Alternatively, details of buses can be found here www.chatsworth.org/your-visit/how-to-find-us/

Oh dear, soggy cows, hope the weather will improve, 🤔🤔

Even the ducks don't look impressed with a swollen river Dove today

They do look as if they have had enough of the rain as we all have

Gorgeous Hereford’s - such a gentle breed

Poor babies!

Soons I saw it, thought it would make a lovely puzzle. Lovely picture.

Beautiful Cattle 😊

This would make a beautiful picture. Lovely beast

They look pretty cheesed off bless them! x

I know they are hardy beasts but still feel sorry for them out in the cold

Aww, poor cows.

Autumn coloured cattle, nice.

I don't envy them poor buggers look pissed off

Wet weather now .😩

Poor Cows!! They look throughly miserable!!

beautiful but when you are walking and come across cows they are scary

Just waiting to be slaughtered, poor beasts indeed!

Thanks Everyone - it was great to get a different view of the area from on the water. I'd thoroughly recommend it for a trip out (whether you're a photographer or not 🙂 )

Absolutely stunning x

Awesome photo, just sat here bear in mind please it's 5.30am trying to decide if it's a rock formation at the top or a 1960s car! Then I found my glasses. OK I'm leaving quietly now 😇

This is an amazing shot!

Oh dear, just to much rain, stay safe everyone, still great shot, take care 😃

Oh dear. Praying for drier weather for you.

It has to stop soon surely! And meanwhile our friends in Australia are praying for rain..stay safe everyone x

Stay safe everyone stay in the warm 🙂

How dreadful SO much flooding and no sign of a break in the weather . My heart goes out for all the people that have flooded homes 😰😰

The farmers here in Suffolk can’t get the potatoes out of the ground because of the wet reckon they won’t be any good if we start getting frosts, but it’s nothing compared to what you have been suffering,families lost everything. My heart goes out to you all.x

Please everyone take care of yourselves and each other. Stay safe and strong.☹

Keep safe

Stay safe everybody and warm x

The woodpecker might have to go! Feeling sorry for all those who are flooded.

And still we have fires in Australia, seems the world's has gone a bit potty at the moment!!!

Beautiful picture but horrendous for so many.

The photo says it all,ye stay safe everyone, sometimes the power of nature just makes you stand back and think wow

That is a shame it is such. aBeautiful District was there earlier this year and hope to return soon

Stay safe out there luckily dry in Surrey today.

Oh dear to much, take care everyone

Lord please keep everyone safe and keep there home safe amen 🙏

Chatsworth looking very soggy!! 😥😥

Such a shame hope the rain stops soon.

Just too much now, stay safe

Stay safe everyone

Goodness me ! 😧

Keep safe everyone

Wish you could send it to us in Australia 🇦🇺

Best of luck .stay safe .

The wonderful village of Castleton is always extra special at Christmas, when brightly-lit trees line the streets and decorate the interior of the lovely church. Its the perfect way to start getting into the festive spirit! The Big Switch On takes place tomorrow at 4.30pm, complete with carols, music and a ride through the streets by a rather special person indeed....  Ho ho ho!

Here’s some further information about times, for those who asked. 🙂

Beautiful!! I love Castleton 💖

Went to see these lights two years ago, brilliant.

Beautiful, I usually come around Christmas but with all the floods here I'm not sure I will risk it, especially if it keeps raining. Still see you in the summer.

I can't recommend it enough, we used to go every year and this was our start to Christmas, finished off having something warming in a local hostelry. Sadly we now live too far away but I have very fond memories of Castleton.

Beautiful.makes even more home sick

Had the pleasure of doing a Santa in The Devil's Arse last year. (Needed my thermals on though!)

Magical place at Christmastime.

We go to the Devils Arse every year for the carols. Magical ❤️

Wonderland at Christmas 🎄 well worth a visit. 👍

Love Castleton any time of year.

Looks really christmassy xx

Looks beautiful.Will have to take a look.

Looks fantastic, 😃

Have never been there on Christmas time, only summer

Beautiful.

used to be a favourite Sunday visiting place when we lived in Manc

Chatsworth looking very soggy this morning and such a shame that the fair is starting completely waterlogged, they are only allowing certain ticket holders to come as there is no where to park as the fields are waterlogged so will i think be a bit of mayhem this weekend . I feel sorry for Chatsworth and more so the stall holders , but truth is no one can do anything, mother nature decided this one   UPDATE - BETTER NEWS  https://www.chatsworth.org/events/christmas-market/

Where there is a will, there's a way. I hope many patrons enjoy this wonderful opportunity. Here in Australia, much is covered by crippling drought, and bushfires, would love to be there, rain, hail, or shine, as they say. Roll up, roll up. 👌🏻👏🏻👌🏻👏🏻💕😌

Love Chatsworth House. Each time I get to England I visit there.

It looks really beautiful to all us Aussies, suffering drought and bushfires. Count your blessings. I hope you manage to have a lovely Christmas fair though. It sounds magic!

What a shame, I used to love going when I lived in Derbyshire and the amount of work that goes into making it so special is unbelievable. I just hope that the weather will settle and people will come back and support the venture.

We were there Tuesday and nearly got stuck in the field overflow car park but the gardens and house was all ok. So sad the Xmas market looked like it would be wonderful. Hope all goes well for them going forward.

Looking very soggy this morning, such a shame, about the Christmas fair hope all goes well for them despite the weather🤔,

Mother nature knows how to spoil people's enjoyment. Xx

Matlock Meadowsis having an event too on this Saturday for Helens trust. Indoors & accessible.

Such a shame about the Christmas Fair 😔 Great picture though

It’s not a washout. We’ve been today and we parked in Calton Lees car park and walked in. There is a shuttle bus if you don’t feel up to walking. Had a lovely day there today. Some lovely stalls as usual 🎄 the fields around are waterlogged but the market itself is fine. Get down there.

Sad to hear that Chatsworth is such a washout. Haddon Hall’s Mercatum, their indoor Artisan Market, is open today and all w/e. Certainly worth a visit!

Beautiful 😊😊 I did work experience in Chatsworth it was so good! 😊😊

I have put a heart for the nice photo ...it’s a pity FB doesn’t let us put a sad face as well as it such a shame about the weather

What a shame chatsworth is the best Christmas fair

The setting for Brideshead Revisited.

Hope all goes well later, especially at over £800 per stall !!! I am coming over on 29th so fingers crossed !

Let's Go Peak District, you should edit or remove this post IMMEDIATELY. say you can get there by do it or bus. You are discouraging visitors the stallholders need desperately.

I just love Chatsworth been there so many times.

One can’t organise the weather. We just have to accept what we are sent. Still sad though. Hoping the sun shines through.

still looks beautiful even if the weather is bad hope the fair still had agood day & didnt get washd out

At least it stayed dry & was busy with booked coach parties

Anyone can attend as long as they travel by public transport or on foot. The ticket restrictions are purely for those arriving by car

Going Sunday xxxx

Always love Chatsworth

Looks beautiful
