Tideswell News Roundup 29th September 2011

I’m trying to keep the blog updated every week or 2 now so that all the Tideswell info gets put out whilst I get the chance.  I do hope that it’s proving useful and interesting for you.  Not all the news is riveting but hey, that’s life in a rural village.  I’m at least trying to keep it relevant though, because a lot of people always say “Nothing ever happens in Tideswell” , well that’s not strictly true.  you just have to have your ear to the ground.

This update I have unearthed another local blogger.  Don Ayers has a lovely little blog which chronicles his life with his Dogs.  In fact has dogs even have their own section on the blog with charming cartoons that have been lovingly made.

The latest version of the “Dog blog” shows a trip up Scratta and the surrounding area.  Scratta is the Hillside running from Monsal Head over towards Wardlow.

One Website I seem to keep coming back to again and again is TripAdvisor. Today I found a  good few reviews of Vanilla Kitchen in Tideswell.  The reviews are all good, which has got to be good.  With a great eatery waiting for you in Tidza, what are you waiting for?


What’s on at the Pictures?  

Tideswell cinema keeps delivering the classics. This time it’s True Grit.  this is the Recent Cohen brother remake of the original which starred John Wayne.  Whilst a little Darker than the original this version is very faithful to the original film, and is certainly worth a watch with an outstanding performance by Hailee Steinfeld as Mattie Ross.
