Recently, whilst on the travels I mentioned in my last post, we dropped into Bakewell in Derbyshire where there was a wonderful Christmas Tree Festival in All Saints church.
Luckily it was a bright and sunny morning as we walked up to the church.
Inside it was warm and welcoming even the church cat was waiting at the door. It was of course trying to get inside where there were lots of trees to climb.
My camera took lovely photos out in the open but some of my interior shots were dismal. There were also lots of people inside but I manged to get a few photos and below are some of my favourites.
The tree above was by the bell ringers of All Saints commemorating all the bell ringers lost during the first world war.

Just down the road from Bakewell is Haddon Hall where we spent a couple of hours in the land of fairy tales.
