    Wow! Love the whole hiking trail tunnel! Don’t have too many of those here… Where is that tunnel located? Looks like you guys had a great time!

    • Hi Jerry! The tunnel’s in Derbyshire, in the UK. The trail was originally a railway line until it was closed in the 1960s – (there was a mass closure of all sorts of lines all over the UK in the 60s). These days, it’s a good route for hikers, cyclists and horse riders!

      It was a good weekend; a few mates from all over the country getting together, but the campsite just happened to be only half an hours drive away for us ๐Ÿ™‚

  5. Looks like my kind of weekend! And I love that tunnel

    • I have to be honest, the tunnel was quite fun. I liked the way you couldn’t see one end from the other, and yet it wasn’t in the slightest bit claustrophobic……unlike caving……

  6. Ach, don’t remind me! I went caving/potholing down near Cheddar Gorge with the Venture Scouts, back in my teens, and scared myself silly when I got badly ‘wedged’ at one point – staving off a blind panic, whilst trying to imagine how on earth any rescue team would extract me from the tight space….obviously I did manage to wriggle free eventually, haha! ๐Ÿ™‚
    Up until that point I had absolutely loved the experience!

    Sooo…that is what a “Buffed Geoff” looks like, I had often wondered what it would look like.

    Sorry, that was my evil twin’s doing on that last comment. ๐Ÿ˜ฆ
    What he had meant to say was..”It looks like everyone enjoyed themselves, and
    Sporty-Geoff sure looks sharp in his new and stylish hat, a rather fine choice indeed.” ๐Ÿ™‚


  9. I’ve walked there and biked it it’s really fun.I think it’s the absailing bridge is near there for whitehall.Looks a nice day! ๐Ÿ™‚

    • Hi Katie! I really enjoyed walking through the tunnel, it was very atmospheric. I think Dixie enjoyed it too.
      You won’t catch me abseiling off any bridge when I go to Whitehall……… ๐Ÿ™‚
