In Search Of A Painting ...

Above is a painting by Wilfred Ball. The scene is Fair Brook in the Peak District. Fair Brook is on the northern edge of Kinder Scout and is accessable from the A57 Snake Pass road which runs from Glossop to Ladybower and the Upper Derwent Valley. I once worked for a plastic extrusion company in Derbyshire who named their company after this lovely painting. For some time I have wanted to find the location of where this painting was created. So on the 14th April 2006 I set on my way to find the spot where this could be. It was not an easy task as there were several places it could have been. Eventually I took photographs in two potential spots. The first was lower in the valley and the second was further up. I was hampered slightly as I did not take a copy of the painting with me (so it was on memory alone to find the location). It was a lovely walk up through Fair Brook to the top and the north Kinder Edge. That day my walk carried on to Fairbrook Naze, Ashop Edge, and the Snake Path.
