There are two distinct upland landscapes in the 'peak district' area of Derbyshire, known as the white-peak, and the dark-peak. One is distinguished by limestone, the other by millstone grit. This shot is in the limestone area, the white-peak, and is not far from the town of Hartington, famous for blue cheeses, which are matured in caves.
