A visit to Hathersage
St Michael’s church hosted more than 40 of us. Thank you to them!

Going to the Peak District National Park gave me the opportunity to enjoy one of the most beautiful places I have ever seen. While having that view, the time of stressful thoughts went away. I wanted to stay there. It was impossible to see anyone without smiling.
On our walk we saw a large old house (North Lees Hall) which is thought to be the inspiration for the home of Edward Rochester in Charlotte Bronte’s novel Jane Eyre.
The location of the church is very pleasant and the beautiful situation seemed to make the people friendly and calm.
The weather was showery. We give two pieces of advice: keep your umbrella in your pocket, and be careful where you put your feet.
I’m grateful to those who made this day possible.
Some further comments
I enjoyed the journey, the warm welcome and the food and drink. I also enjoyed the beautiful countryside, the hills, the animals and the wonderful colours of the fields and the flowers. The walk was very nice. The church, the buildings, the village and the farm all most interesting. I was sad because some people were unable to complete the walk (because of being in a wheelchair) and could not finish it with us.
It was exciting to see the countryside with all the sheep and animals walking around. The food was delicious and the people were so lovely. Thank you very much for this opportunity.
