Our third and final day in Derbyshire started with a Wetherspoons breakfast again, more of a brunch by the time we were eating it though…but this time we went into Ripley. Before Emma could finish her food the wee baby began to get too agitated so I took her for a walk round Ripley town centre, which was a brief adventure around the town hall and market.
It had become incredibly hot as we left Ripley and headed to Cromford canal. We had an ice cream by the canal, keeping well shaded as usual before we had a wander across the road to Cromford Mills, which is actually part of the Derwent Valley Mills world heritage UNESCO site.
We did very little there accept have a wander round and feed the baby on a shaded bench…but I’m sure the museum and other attractions make it a fascinating historical site to visit.
We ended up back across the road in the cafe for a quick tea and cake before calling it a day on our Derbyshire adventures and heading home before the heat overwhelmed us!
