Day 2: Our second day began with a short trip (7 mins) to the Dancing Duck Brewery in Derby – First beer of the day at 09.55!!:

Back to the bus for a ride up into the Dales where we finally get to the end of a long, narrow road to find Whim Ales:

The bus then takes us back to Hartington village and then on towards our lunch with a refreshment stop first at the Three Stags Heads:
