TS'09 : Castleton, Derbyshire
4:10 AM

This is the first trip that outside from the city center. With some information given by Mr. Alexei Nabok (MicroElectronic lecturer), we just cross our fingers so that we didn't get lost or took the wrong bus to Castleton. There are few Castleton in UK. The one we visited was in Derbyshire.

Finally we reach our destination

Welcome to Castleton

To make sure you at the correct place, you will see the Peak Hotel just opposite of the bus stop.
