Picture 1 - overlooking the village of Hope, pictures 2 and 3 - Ilam Hall and picture 4 - the River Wye at Bakewell. A substantial part of the Peak District National Park lies within the county of Derbyshire. The two major areas are the Dark Peak and the White Peak. The Dark Peak is in the north of the county, with wild and wonderful landscape. White Peak territory is further south, where the landscape gets softer with limestone caves and lush green valleys. The Dark Peak gets its name from the underlying limestone being covered by a cap of millstone grit, whereas the White Peak does not have the millstone grit atop the limestone.

East Riddlesden Hall is a National Trust, 17th-century manor house in Keighley, West Yorkshire. See Google Map. The Grade I listed hall was built in 1642 by the wealthy Halifax clothier, James Murgatroyd. The Murgatroyds became notorious for their profanity and debauchery and a legend arose that the River Aire changed its course in shame, in order to flow further away from the hall! The land, which stretches down to the River Aire, includes meadows and a riverside walk, with a formal garden and wild garden close to the house. The Hall has been used as a filming location for the 1992 film of Emily Brontë's Wuthering Heights. It also featured in the paranormal TV programme Most Haunted and in the 2017 BBC Television series Gunpowder.

About Beautiful Britain

The Beautiful Britain website has been a hobby since 2001. That makes it almost as old as Google! BB does not generate any revenue and no longer creates links to commercial websites. The pictures are all from our many short break holidays here in Britain.

Why is this website changing?

60% of Internet traffic is now on mobile devices (2017). In the months ahead I hope to convert the most viewed pages of this this web site to a 'mobile friendly' format. If they do not display correctly, please let me know.
