After our ride with Phil, we headed of to the train station to get Ben and Christina.

They had traveled up to Matlock on the train from London.  

We headed on up to Wyns place and then set of for a walk on the Giddy edge.. High Tor is the area on the top of a very steep cliff that overlooks Matlock Bath.

There is a natural warm spring in the area where Matlock Bath gets its name. It was very popular in the Victorian age. Currently the baths have very big gold fish in them and they are not used for bathing.
