In and Around - Beechenhill Farm, Derbyshire
Near Ilam and the Dove Dale
Wanting a quiet place to get away from it all we ventured out into the Peak District early in our two year bit of post-grad work in Nottingham. There was no internet, and I'm not sure how we found Beechenhill Farm, but we did. What you see here is what we saw then, though these images are from 40 years later when we returned for a holiday.
Included in this gallery are some shots of Ilam, Thorpe Cloud and the Olde Cottage in Bramcote, Notts, where we lived in that period of time. Below is a video of Beechenhill Farm. In the 1970's it was run by the Fortnams. Today Alexandra Gray and Sue Prince manage the place. It is an award winning working dairy farm. The following video is sponsored by the farm owners.
