Lathkill Dale is one of my favourite places in the White Peak of Derbyshire. The walk down from Monyash to Alport is always a pleasure and has many points of interest along the way. This image was taken on 29th June 2010 with a Nikon D90 and Nikon VR 18-200 zoom lens. The focal length for this image was 18mm.

This image is 4305 x 2865px at 300dpi resolution.

A little information about Lathkill Dale from Peak District Information:

The river Lathkill rises just below Monyash and flows down to meet the Wye just below Haddon Hall. The valley it forms is one of the finest of the limestone dales and the upper part is a National Nature Reserve, in the care of English Nature. It is a famous trout-fishing river, and Izaak Walton declared it to be the ‘purest and most transparent stream’ he had seen. 

After passing Over Haddon the river continues in a heavily wooded, steep-sided valley to emerge at Conksbury bridge, where the mediaeval bridge carries the Youlgreave road across the river. Here there are numerous fish-ponds and the character of the river softens, flowing in a gentler, less steep-sided valley to meet the Bradford at Alport and then continue another 3 kilometres to the Wye.
