Having abandoned the walk and got back to 'The Beast' before the first of the blizzards hit, we headed for Tissington. A campsite was found at Town Head Farm, very rural and almost, but not quite, a wild campsite. On-site was Elsan disposal, water and electric but no loos or showers. Not that that worried us as 'The Beast' is pretty well self sufficient. No sooner had we pulled onto hard standing when another blizzard stopped any thought of leaving the van to make use of the electric. 15 minutes later it cleared enough for me to take photos, Ian to get the electrics plugged in so we could get the heater going and finally get the TV out with the hope that a decent signal could be found for the Six Nations Rugby. He was very pleased when the channel he wanted tuned in.

We have been told by a local that more snow is forecast over night and that Buxton and Castleton has had road closures because of the conditions. Oh dear...Thats where we are heading. Now I wonder what tomorrow will bring?
|Will you look at those clouds.|
|Hmmm...good day tomorrow or bad?|
