Curbar Edge sits proudly above the little village of Curbar in the Peak District National Park.
When I first moved to Derbyshire I found the naming conventions of the area difficult to get a hold of. I had spend most of the previous 20 years in Devon and Somerset. I have come to realise that a place name with Edge following means the gritstone cliff that overhangs that place.
Consequently, Curbar Edge overhangs Curbar, Bamford Edge overhangs Bamford, Froggatt Edge Froggatt. You get the picture.
The Edge at Curbar provides the ideal location for an evening stroll. The sun sets against the edge. This warms the rock tones and gives a pleasant view across Curbar, Chatsworth and the surrounding area.
For this photograph I made my way to Curbar first thing in the morning. By the time I arrived the sun was up and about. There is a reasonably priced car park near the edge which gives easy access to the famous pathway.
You can walk along the edge and just keep going. There are some amazing views, although it can be a little windy.
Please note that Peter adds new photographs to his online collection at regular intervals. In a bid to make sure that he remains in the real world he limits his time online!
