An awkward one, to photograph
It necessitated a turn round & a drive back to the summit, in order to pull up safely (knowing there was no traffic behind)

I'll admit I've never noticed this one before, particularly when on the bike, as I'm either head-bowed on the way up, or eyes streaming behind glasses/watching traffic on the descent😄

Milepost
Bakewell Road (A6)

Spotted at the last moment, due to foliage (trampled down by me), with a halt in the adjacent bus-stop

The distance has been erased for whatever reason

A load had the distances removed during the Second World War. In case of invasion, or in case of spy activity.

Some were even removed completely, to be replaced after the war.

We did indeed, with daughter (& her father)

I had spotted most of them on way up, & out of deference to wife didn't stop
Until into the village, at the bottom of Blue Bank

We have a Frank Meadow Sutcliffe print of this view in the front parlour (always that name to me. given the age of the house; 121 years old)
