Many of you Am-urr-ikens may have seen the classic A&E version of Pride and Prejudice where Colin Firth stole our hearts away.
My favorite VHS was number four, where Lizzie goes to the Peak District with her aunt and uncle and visits Pemberley for the first time. And no, my favorite part was not the infamous Darcy-in-wet-white-shirt moment.
I always loved that bit where she’s climbed in her long dress to the top of a rocky hill, and the camera pans over this gorgeous scenery, and you can see her catch her breath in awe, and sigh with that kind of yearning sadness that nature produces in a body: “oh! beautiful”.
We chased that scene this weekend in the peaks walking along the River Dove.
