Bakewell Tart

My friend Fiona and I went to Derbyshire. The weather was crap. We visited the Cork Stone first. It is large and brown, and looks like an old cork. Then we went to see the Nine Ladies of Stanton Moor. This is a circle of small brown stones. There were two men getting drunk inside the circle. They had some friendly dogs.

Then we went to see the Andle Stone and Doll Tor, but we couldn't see them because of a bull.

We went to Robin Hood's Stride. It was made of lots of large brown rocks that were really tall, with lots of interesting shapes. There were many people there. We walked down to Nine Stones Close. These are four brown rocks, each about six feet tall, stood in a square near an oak tree. They look nice.

After that, we went to Arbor Low. This had 56 white slabs of rock lying on the ground, inside a ring of earth. It was really exciting.

The next day we went back to Robin Hood's Stride. The weather was good, but it looked the same as the day before. However, Nine Stones Close looked nicer in the morning light.

Then we visited Rowtor Rocks, but couldn't find the rock art, so we went home.
