Birchen Edge- Peak District Photography
A stunning sunset at Birchen Edge earlier this Autumn. Whilst I would have liked a bit more cloud, the soft pastel tones and burst of warm light through the valley made the visit more than worthwhile.
Birchen Edge is a location that’s been on my to do list for far too long. Despite visiting many times over the years, I’ve never had conditions that did it any justice. Whilst by no means perfect, I was pleased to finally get some great light spilling through the valley and the birch woodland in full Autumn colour.
About Birchen Edge:
Birchen Edge is popular with walkers and climbers alike, offering stunning views down over the nearby Chatsworth Estate and beyond.On the edge stands the Nelson’s Monument; a 3-metre high carved gritstone pillar with a ball on top. The monument was erected in 1810 by local businessman John Brightman, a resident of the nearby village of Baslow, in honour of Lord Nelson . Alongside the column, three gritstone formations called the “Ship Rocks” just back from the edge itself have been carved with the names of three of Nelson’s ships: Victory, Defiance and Royal Soverin.
