a view looking from the first pedestrian bridge up the River Wye
Bakewell receding in the background

a glimpse of the River Wye
possibly stepping stones over the River Wye but no access path visible on either bank

The River Lathkill seen below us

down towards the road leading to Alport
buildings passed on the way to Alport 'Hamlet' - see notice below fixed to one of them
