Bad luck in Matlock!

A 2-day stay in Matlock in Derbyshire to see family and friends showed considerable promise when I spotted the Oxfam bookshop directly opposite our Airbnb! And just a few shops down there was another second hand bookshop, too!

Picked up from the station, we had a light lunch at the home of our relations for the first reunion. But it was downhill from there onwards as a violent sickness bug took hold at the end of the day. Earlier in the week little Iris had been unwell and it looks as if I had picked up her bug. The next fifteen hours were the worst of the worst and we were unsure whether I would be able to travel home the following morning. Fortunately I was.

St Pancras looked magnificent – the photo below was taken on the way up.

However I never got to see much of Matlock or get to visit the bookshops or participate in the main, family reunion. Next time….

The magnificent St Pancras Station
