Always wanted to visit The Churnet Valley and never got there for one reason or another. Finally got there on the August Bank Holiday 2010, and I was not disappointed. Clear blue sky,nice and warm and The Churnet Valley Railway. The recipe for a perfect day. The 8F Number 8624 and a DMU were in service. With the Trains,canal boats,The beautiful surroundings and a Liquid lunch in The Black Lion the day passed too quick.
