Hi All. 

After our ride we headed of in the car to Matlock. This is about an hours drive across to the south side of the Peak District. 

Matlock and area is where the industrial revolution started in the late 1700s with the start of the textile industries.  Also there was a lot of Lead mining in the Peak District with one of the biggest mines with over 170 miles of underground tunnels located just out of Matlock.

 

 After arriving at Matlock and having Tea, Winner,  Alices Mum took us to the local for a drink.  Murtle and Keela the dog where also allowed in the pub!

 New local money allowed this modern rendition of a castle to be built on the hill behind Wins house in the 1800s. It is being renovated at the moment into flash apartments.
