On of my favourite places in Derbyshire...

Since moving back to Derbyshire, after being away for over 2 years, I have had an adjustment period of finding places that I can love and like as much as the places I loved in York. One of the more unlikely places I have fallen in love with is Tansley Carboot & Market on a Sunday Morning.

Tansley is a small place in Derbyshire, surrounded by beautiful countryside and every Sunday during the Spring/Summer/Autumn period it hosts a lovely market and carboot sale.

I don't know why, but there is something therapeutic about getting together your old stuff that you no longer want and selling it to others in horrendous weather conditions. I have so far done 2 carboot sales and I have loved chatting to people and selling things.

The picture below is when everyone is packing up but there is usually a fantastic amount of stalls selling all sorts of stuff. I try not to buy too much but there is usually fantastic fruit and veg for sale from small holders in the area.

I love that coming to this market gets me up and going on a Sunday morning when I go, I then have a long and productive Sunday rather than lying in bed for most of the morning (although that's essential too!)

What is your favourite Sunday morning place?


  1. My goodness, what a stunning place!

  2. The view is amazing, appreciated most by car-booters without the rain :)
