- Rained in Chapel en le Frith this afternoon! - and in Manchester at Old Trafford, they had to clear the pitch because of a lightning storm! - but none in Buxton so far! there is a storm at Ashbourne right now at 19.30 - it is slowly tracking northwards towards us - we will see - rain radar at 19.30 Sunday:

Ventured this week again, along The Monsal Trail – but not on the bike trail this time – off to the side of that, around the tunnels. Of course when the Peak Park took over the old Midland Mainline through these dales, they closed the tunnels off, and to use the trail, paths were needed to follow the route from Bakewell to Blackwell Mill, near Buxton, getting around the closed tunnels.
In 1980, Ian Hurst, Peak Park Ranger, and a team of other rangers and volunteers, were tasked with improving the already existing footpaths following the River Wye, so that walkers could use the full length of the Monsal Trail and navigate around the closed tunnels - so the full trail could open. The tracks they improved, are less used, now the tunnels are open – but if you get chance to walk them, the scenery, flora and fauna, and the sheer scale of the task of building a railway through this terrain becomes clear!
There is a profusion of wild flowers including early orchids - there is the smell of wild garlic (did you know that in Austria, cattle graze on wild garlic and it flavours the milk – it is sold as garlic flavoured!) – there are acres of Butterbur (looks like rhubarb but cannot be eaten – can be used for many medicinal purposes - and grows near damp ground) do you know why it is called Butterbur??
…………………………….. in olden days, the large leaves were used to wrap butter!!
You pass the site of "Wormhill Springs" (you will see the dogs enjoying a cooling drink!) - here, rain falling on hundreds of acres land around Wormhill,  passes down through porous limestone rock, and emerges in this lovely spot - an incredible water garden!
The tracks are quite challenging in places – Impossible on a bike, so walkers have it to themselves! - and it needs a scramble in places - and great fun hopping over the famous stepping stones, which the Peak Park team refurbished, to get through Chee Dale Gorge – but it is worth it – (even if afterwards you take the easy route home via the tunnels!) - as I hope you will see from these pictures. Let me know if you need directions.::

-UK, Met Office - Longer Range Forecast, for the entire UK   Met Office.:
-UK Outlook for Monday 28 May 2018 to Wednesday 6 Jun 2018:
Very warm and perhaps hot weather will continue for most through the end of May with plenty of sunshine, but with the risk of showers or thunderstorms more widely. With light easterly winds, North Sea coasts will often be cooler and cloudier. Into early June, confidence becomes low but most should remain dry and warm, although probably cooler than at the end of May. However, there will be an increasing chance of somewhat more changeable weather with the risk of showery rain becoming more widespread.
UK Outlook for Thursday 7 Jun 2018 to Thursday 21 Jun 2018:
Confidence remains low through June, however there are signs that it may become more widely changeable across the UK. This will bring more frequent spells of rain or showers. However there are likely to be drier and more settled periods for most areas too. Temperatures are likely to be near or slightly above average on the whole, with the potential for some warmer spells, especially at first.-
