925 Monsal Dale and Fin Cop

Curling round the massive bulk of Fin Cop, the River Wye flows through Monsal Dale and down to Ashford in the Water, one of the most attractive villages in the Peak. But the lead mines are here too, for in Great Shacklow Wood water pours from a dark tunnel as a reminder of the past.
