Elizabeth Bennet longs to see the view from the famous Black Rocks in Derbyshire, but her aunt and uncle refuse to allow her to climb to the highest rock outcroppings alone.

One involves the then unknown Colin Firth, a wet chemise, breeches and riding boots. The other is far more evocative, when Jennifer Ehle, as Elizabeth Bennet, stands on the great rocks of what is now the Peak District National Park, contemplating the prospect of an awkward visit the next day., You'll love it, most ardently.
There was some debate between me and my family as to what the rock resembles — we settled for a grumpy man — but of course the main attraction for Pride and Prejudice fans is admiring the rock and views like Elizabeth did and possibly pretending to be her! And the view behind of the path. You might remember seeing Mr and Mrs Gardiner walking along here:. If you follow this, you will come to a lay-by at the base of the rocks where you can park and start your ascent! August 23, at pm.
