Peak District – Monsal Trail & The DJI Phantom 4

In this video we walk along the Monsal Trail from Bakewell to Millers Dale then back via Litton Mill and Cressbrook. I took my DJI Phantom 4 for it’s first flight in the Peak District, we captured some great views of the Headstone Viaduct and even flew it though the headstone tunnel.

After the flight through the dale I packed the drone away safely as the rain that had been forecasted started to arrive. We then walked down the trail to Millers Dale station for some much needed refreshments, afterwards we turned around and headed down to the River Wye at Litton Mill. It was a nice gentle wander down stream from Litton, thankfully the river was low enough for us to get past the Limestone cliffs before arriving at Cressbrook Mill (there is an alternate route that is signposted if the water level is too high). We then made our way over the bridge at the weir and climbed back up on to the Monsal Trail. Our route then took us back to Bakewell via Hassop Station for coffee and cake… It would be rude not to stop 🙂 haha

Sadly, there is no map to go with this short post. I was conserving battery so I could use my phone for flying the drone so had ViewRanger turned off.
