A beautiful and tranquil scene, but with a terrible past. Legend has it that in one of these cottages a horrific murder took place. It is said that a tramp called at one of the cottages for food, he was refused by the lady of the house who was cooking at the time. The enraged tramp then scolded the woman to death by pouring boiling fat down her throat.
These thatched cottages are in the village of Baslow, Derbyshire, England.

Hi, my name is Rod and I live in Burton upon Trent, United Kingdom, a town which is known internationally as the capital of British brewing.
Photography has been my passion and main interest since my parents gave me a Kodak Brownie 127 for my 8th birthday. I still have the Brownie and I still have the 1920s Praktica which I bought second-hand a few years later, as my first 35mm SLR. I have covered most aspects of photography, but my preference is for landscape, nature and architectural photography. I am also keen on night shots and I enjoy snorkelling and underwater photography.
I love to travel, and I always have a camera with me where ever I go, ready to capture the unexpected as well as the planned shots. I try to use as little editing as possible with my digital work and I limit this to cropping and the occasional colour correction.
Well, thank you for visiting. Please browse through some of my pictures, and I hope that you find something of interest.
