Ling Heather on the Moors

Now is a great time to see the ling heather on the moors in all its glory.  Whole moorlands in the Peak District appear to be carpeted in purple!  The heather has been late flowering this year, probably due to the cooler than usual and wet weather that we have experienced over the summer.  The displays of flowering heather that we have seen over the weekend on our half day guided walks and Derwent Edge Walk, have however been well worth waiting for.
