Roseberry Topping

Roseberry Topping is a very distinctive hill with its half-cone shape summit and jagged cliff and stands at 320metres (1,050ft).Its unique conical shape is the result of the hard sandstone cap protecting the underlying shales and clays from erosion by the rain, wind and ice.The views are fantastic and on a clear day you can see as far as the Pennines. Best to go for October or November sunsets, when this side of the Topping should catch the sun.

Clovelly Harbour

Because of its east facing position on the north coast Clovelly is particularly good in the mornings for sunrise and if you can get high tide to coincide with sunrise then so much the better. As well as the harbour you've also got plenty of photographic opportunities in every other part of the village. Mornings are also best as it is likely to be much quieter without the tourists! A short walk along the pebble beach brings you to a small waterfall and an outcrop of large rocks which provide some great foreground interest when looking back towards the harbour.

Stanage Edge

There area number of 'Edges' in this area. The biggest and perhaps most well known is Stanage but there's also Curbar, Baslow and Froggett nearby. Each is an escarpment of gritstone with loads of rock features to photograph. They used to mine and cut millstones for windmills locally once upon a time and you can still see discarded millstones littered around which make good foreground interest. Wildlife photographers will be able to photograph red grouse, curlew and hares on the moors which run right up to the Edges.
