Welcome to “My British summer”!

Having arrived at Manchester Airport I boarded the 199 bus and let it drive me all the way to Bakewell – which isn´t that far from Manchester and there was a change at Buxton. The lovely market town Bakewell is located in Derbyshire, in the southern part of the Peak District. And it seems to be especially known for its pudding – at least, everyone told me about it and every tea room and shop claimed to offer real, traditional one. I haven´t tried it, I just had chosen Bakewell as a base for visiting Chatsworth House, but was pleasantly surprised how lovely and cosy it was.

Located on the River Wye Bakewell was founded in Anglo Saxon times with a market being installed in 1254 and the beautiful bridge over the river Wye built in the 13th century

In the 17th century, a hot spring was found and it was tried to develop Bakewell into a spa town like Buxton. Today Bakewell is a charming town full of little tea rooms, restaurants and local shops, a great base to explore the Peak District and many sights like Chatsworth House or Hadden Hall.

All Saints Church was founded in 920 and sits a little bit above the city centre. There are still two Saxon crosses in the churchyard and this was the view from my window:
