Darley Dale Bowl

Where the F**k is the bowl in Darley??

We have had a few enquires as to were the bowl in DD is, and we have the answer.

The park is just behind the Joseph Whitworth Centre marked on map just past DFS heading NW,( DE4 2EQ for you sat-navers).
You will have to park on Station Road and the bowl is towards the South West corner of the map, or far left corner of the park near the pond.

Happy Hunting...Word

Roll With Us: Session 5 of 8

Episode 5 of 8

Showy males not always a good catch

When males show off to attract potential partners, exactly how honest are they likely to be? Sadly for females, scientists have found that what you see is not always what you get - males will stop at nothing to make the most of their chances.

Hooked Skate Organisation Disagree to Allegations of Showy Males

A Hooked spokesperson suggested that its all about people having fun, and if other persons think its showing off then maybe they should try it sometime. Im sure some males will be attracted to female skaters having fun on there boards, thats how it works- Roll With Us ladies and gents.

Skate Park... Bowl

Darley Dale... Bowl Roll

Legend says that it was a massive ice cream making vat, constructed by the Romans circa 74 AD. To supply visiting dignitaries and their legions whilst they were doing a tour of the Peak District using numerous B+B's along the way.

The vat supplied the Legionares with what was thought to be a medicinal supply of one cornetto or ice lolly as a prescribed daily allowance. This was as long as they stayed in the Peaks.
A teeth rotting revelation to an other wise mundane story.

We like to think it was built by skaters for skaters, with a checkered history of epic slides, grinds and slams to add to its slightly haggard and pattened character.


Rad on the drop.

Hooked board and Adio insole... bestest mates.

Surprize me shit brain!

Thats nasty!

It gets a ...'s up from us.
