Down By The River Photography Tour

About

This tour is an ideal opportunity for those wanting to try some long exposure photography on waterfalls and streams.

We will visit the wonderful Three Shires Head, where two pack horse bridges mark the boundary between Cheshire, Staffordshire and Derbyshire as several waterfalls complete the tranquil scene.

We'll also visit Monsal Dale and the wonderfully named Water-cum-Jolly Dale, where the former mill workings are now a nature reserve below limestone crags.

Padley Gorge is a great place to wander around ancient woodlands and a cascading stream. Whilst Lumsdale Falls is a unique landscape featuring the ruins of old mill buildings which were built in to the steep rocks of the valley and powered by the adjacent waterfalls on the Bentley Brook.

The tour will be provided by Mark Sweeney from Live For The Hills, who takes all the photographs for the website and social media channels.

The tour is informal and friendly, with opportunities to stop at the various locations to try out some landscape photography. There will also be an opportunity to enjoy a nice pub lunch at one of the Peak District's great traditional pubs; ideal to discuss photography and post processing techniques.

This tour requires some walking on footpaths which are uneven in places so a reasonable level of fitness would be recommended, as well as suitable footwear.

### Itinerary
We would suggest a pick up time of 10am and would expect to return at around 5pm.

The itinerary can be flexible on the day to suit your preferences, as this is a private tour. So, if there is somewhere that you particularly want to visit on your tour, we will try and fit that in for you. We pride ourselves on flexibility and love a challenge!
