A Muddy Walk In Bakewell: UK Travel And Lifestyle Blog. Hello friends, happy Tuesday. Would you like to come with us on A Muddy Walk In Bakewell?

A muddy walk in Bakewell or should I say a Very Very muddy walk in Bakewell!? Haha! So much fun!!

A Muddy Walk In Bakewell:

Over the school holidays, a few weeks ago we took a nice family drive out to one of our favourite places for a walk in the UK, Bakewell.

Where Is Bakewell?

Bakewell is a small market town and civil parish in the Derbyshire Dales district of Derbyshire, England, known for a local confection, Bakewell pudding.

We all dressed up smart but with plenty of clothes on so we were nice and warm when walking. But we forgot one thing, though. It is still Winter and there had been lots of rain!! Lots and lots of rain.

As soon as we started our walk we all looked at each other and said, oh no mud!!

A fallen tree in our path. It was hard crawling under it in the mud.

I was just hoping it would not move and squash me as there was no way I wanted to try and climb over it!!

I did go out in clean shoes, honest.

It was unbelievably muddy and slippy when we were climbing the hills. I was dressed in jeans, my daughter had her new tracksuit bottoms on and my son had his new trainers on.

Oh well, we were there now and there was nothing we could do about it other than getting on with it and enjoy it!!

Don’t leave me!!

The hills were fun but in some places, there was not much room between the path and a sheer drop.

Scary in all the mud.

On slip and it would be like a game of snakes and ladders.

family walk

Come on Mum.

Mollie thought “Never leave a man behind” bless her.

Mollie the collie

Aww, Mollie kept coming back to see where I was. Splashing me with mud in her excitement of running around freely.

Tree roots

How cool are the roots of the tree? Love seeing all these trees. What could be better in Winter than being out in the country, breathing in the fresh air?

Tree roots

I bet it these looks like something out of a scary movie at night time.

Up to the top of the hill and some more trees have blown down in the wind. It was starting to get scary now!! I hate it when I see blown down trees on a path we were walking along. Can you imagine how scary it must be if you see it fall down?

How cool are the hand-built walls at the top of the peaks!? I love these kinds of wall’s. We do not have any around were we live but remind me of visiting my Aunty’s house when I was younger as she lived in the country.

How cool are the tall trees too?

Eventually, it was time to come down the hill. Yeah!! Everyone tired and ready for fish and chips. No walks around the shops for us this day, though. We were all caked in mud.

We all went to the car and fed Mollie whilst my husband fetched the chips. After all, he was the cleanest one out of us all. Lol.

All in all, it was a great day. One we will remember for years to come. That is all that matters. No one remembers the day you sat home all day and did nothing, do they!?

    Despite the mud it sounds like a lovely walk. You got some fab pictures and I do like the roots and walls, very cool indeed. And I bet Mollie was in her element. I know our dog would be too!

    • 16 March 2017 / 17:44

    That is a very muddy walk. The roots on that tree are amazing, they remind me of a book my son likes to read called "where's my hairy toe"………I think you found it

    • 15 March 2017 / 17:31

      Hehe, they do look like toes, don't they πŸ™‚

    • 15 March 2017 / 13:09

      Hehe, when Mollie gets her white paws mucky I think they will never go so white again but thankfully they do. Mollie loves mud.

    Lovely to see you enjoying an adventure, regardless of the weather, and MUD! I started reading this and thought of "We're going on a bear hunt". (sorry).I love getting out and about when we can, and I'm one for not letting the likes of mud stop it. Loving the photos, looks wonderful.

    • 15 March 2017 / 06:23

      Thank you Jen. I was a bit scared we might run into a bear or something scary when we got lots in the fields at the top, lol πŸ™‚

    I'm always lagging behind because I'm busy taking photos. It does look fun. You're so right about the mud though. Yikes! I bet that was a pain to clean up. I love the reflection of the tree in the water.

    • 15 March 2017 / 06:16

      Thanks Alissa. He,he I am always at the back taking pictures too. Yes the mud was so much of a pain to clean after. Lucky it came of all the clothes OK.
