Peter’s Stone is a circular limestone dome in the Wardlow Mires, northern end of Cressbrook Dale.

A gibbet was a gallows used to display the bodies of criminals after their execution and this is where they were left until long after execution with their bones rattling against the iron cage serving as a deterrent to other would-be criminals.
I have used Fuji Provia slide film for this shot. I like slide film colours. Although Provia is not my top favourite stock I like to shoot it when I can.
I met Lomo Lady Gray 400 by chance, in Boots drug store. It was a 3 film pack on SALE! 3 rolls of 36 exposures films for £2 ( normal price per pack is £16.99). I bought all the packs they had in the shop. Bargain. I did not know much about this film, but I took my chances.
A hidden gem in the Peak District. Many people don’t even know this place exists. It is a pretty special place. The valley is home to a series of magnificent waterfalls, ponds and the ancient ruins of three mills. This area is of huge archaeological significance, here you will find one of the largest collections of water-powered industrial mills in the country! The area is a scheduled ancient archaeological site and much work continues to preserve this beautiful piece of English heritage.
