Ahh, Bakewell – nestled in the heart of the Peak District, the town is every walker’s dream after a long day of hiking in the Dales. It may be world-famous for its jam puddings and tarts, but Bakewell is also unique for its quaint streets, historical buildings and weekly Monday markets. Parish-church enthusiasts will no doubt be familiar with All Saints’ Church, founded over a thousand years ago in Saxon times! Wherever you go in Bakewell, its spire looms overhead, stretching into the sky.
This design captures the idyllic summer scenes perfectly: the medieval ashlar bridge spanning the leisurely Wye, its mellow stone catching the light on a sunny afternoon. Ducks paddling the river, willows draping their fingers into the water. And of course, the spire of All Saints’ Church in the distance, framed by ribbons of cloud. This tea towel is the ideal thing for brightening up your kitchen.
