Packing up at my camp site outside Buxton, not a great camp.

Trip is going well. Last night I was camped by the road just outside Buxton on a piece of rough ground. It was spongy. Am here the library in beautiful Bakewell anticipating my breakfast in a cafe. Will push on later in the direction of Chesterfield.

Yesterday, 6th April, I set out on this trip to Belgium to visit friends in Brugge and Mechellen and the First War battlefield sites.
Last night I wild camped in a field at Toft near Knutsford. It was a splendid camp, the weather was fine and I had my radio for company..Chelsea v Man Utd. This morning cycled the 10 miles into Macclesfield, gateway to the Peak District. I was expecting good weather but it has become drizzly and damp.
