Beautiful day out and a good walk along the river. Stop for lunch there as the shops are nearby. Enjoyed watching birds and ducks along the river. Car park wasn't too far. There you will also find the love bridge full with love locks.

A better bet would be to park in Baslow and walk around the Chatsworth estate. That's better for pushchairs and there are several excellent pubs and restaurants in Baslow.
