NATURE'S FEAST OF WOODLAND, ROCK, AND WATER IN DOVEDALE, AMONG THE DERBYSHIRE HILLS

NATURE'S FEAST OF WOODLAND, ROCK, AND WATER IN DOVEDALE, AMONG THE DERBYSHIRE HILLS

This photograph shows one of many lovely views of Dovedale, the three-mile valley from Mill Dale to Thorpe Mill along which the river Dove wends its sinuous course amid a wonderful variety of woodland and rock. Dovedale has its antiquarian interest, notably at the little village of Ham, where there are Saxon crosses: but its greatest attraction is its scenery, changing every few yards as the glen ascends or descends. The character of the river itself changes rapidly. In places its stream flows tranquilly, almost solemnly, while elsewhere it quickens to an impetuous flood, scouring the moss-grown rocks whose fantastic shapes break the line of its banks, or eddying between the boulders that have fallen to make islets in its bed.
