photo of Lambert Lane

The left-hand photograph is from the book �Parish life with a troubled vicar�. On the back of the original photograph was written �Crich Carr�, and it was assumed that was where it was taken from. Several locals have been puzzling about where it was in Crich Carr and which track is shown.
Aileen Taylor, with a flash of detective insight, has solved the mystery. The original photograph was printed the wrong way round! Printed the correct way round gives a different picure altogether. The view is not from Crich Carr, but of Crich Carr in the far distance. It is taken from Lambert Lane, Whatstandwell (just across the A6 going towards Alderwasley).
The road seen curving away in the far distance is Hindersitch Lane.
