726 Millers Dale and Monsal Dale

One of our favourite summer walks is to Brushfield, high above Monsal Dale where rock roses, wild pansies and thyme are your reward for the climb, while Water-cum-Jolly Dale is as lovely as its name. Then, wandering on beside the River Wye through Monsal Dale, we brought our day's count to 72 different flowers - try and beat that!
