Doxey Pool on The Roaches
Doxey Pool, near the top of The Roaches, is one of the highest bodies of standing water in the Peak District. It is associated with a number of legends. It is reputed to be "bottomless" and is haunted by a monster "Jenny Green-teeth" that will drag anyone that ventures into the waters deep into its murky depths, never to be seen again. It was mostly ice-covered when we reached it on our walk today. Button paddled in it and didn't seem perturbed! (Canon EOS 60D, Tamron 10-24mm @ 10mm, 1/320s @ f/6.3)
