What was I photographing on this day in previous years?

Ten years ago it was the Ecclesbourne Valley Railway in Derbyshire.

The 1 in 27 Ravenstor Incline heads north out of Wirksworth station and didn’t originally carry passengers (leading as it did, to Middlepeak Quarry) but on special event days the line is in operation and is well worth a visit.

What was I photographing on this day in previous years?

Nine years ago it was more steam trains! This time at the Midland Railway-Butterley in Derbyshire.

London Midland & Scottish Railway (LMS) Princess Coronation class 4-6-2 locomotive 46233 DUCHESS OF SUTHERLAND was in operation and looked fantastic in the autumn sunshine.

I also paid a visit to the line’s demonstration signal box, a Midland Railway (MR) structure dating from 1895 that originally stood at Linby in Nottinghamshire.

What was I photographing on this day in previous years?

Ten years ago it was a footbridge over Burbage Brook in Yarncliffe Wood in the Peak District, in an area better known as Padley Gorge.

I’ve not been up there in a while, it’s a beautiful spot but incredibly difficult to get to yourself!
