Cam was itching to get here to have a pint of Dark Drake. ...but it wasn't on! Big disappointment. The pub was heaving but we found a seat and Cam had a whole pork pie to cheer himself up.

The bus from Ripley back to Derby conveniently stops on the bridge over the Derwent, very close to this lovely old multi-roomed Marstons house. Recommended.
