Lud’s Church -
The photographs below were taken by Jenny Throup on the group’s visit to Lud’s Church, at the southern end of the Peak District in Staffordshire.
The deep chasm in the millstone grit is believed to have got its name from the supposed religious activities of the Lollards in this area in the 15th century, but the area also has alleged links to Robin Hood, Sir Gawain and the Green Knight, and the 19th century Luddites.
Whatever may be the truth of these legends, the area is popular with walkers, and it is clear why from the photos.
