In Windows 10 C;/windows/web/wallpaper/*.jpg

I've just wasted a boatload of time trying to find out where the narrow winding road through a green hilly (English) landscape was shot. It seems that nobody on the web can give a straight simple answer and all these clever nerds want to send me on a chase into the file structure and a look at the properties of the photo... which... ends up saying diddly squat about anything. Does anyone have a simple real world location where that image was taken? I'm guessing Wales? Maybe Scotland?

This is the image. The one on the computer is too large to upload.

When you right click on the wallpaper, in the pop up menu you'll see the name and web address on the bottom.

It appears to be the bendy road mentioned here: https://www.gettyimages.co.uk/detail...mage/546441405

"The bendy road
A well known bendy road which travels down through a bumpy green landscape below Mam Tor and Rushup edge to Edale in the Peak District.Summer sunlight making the green landscape glow."

Using OG's info, here's a Google Maps link showing the same stretch of road from a slightly different view

Don't you get that little popup asking if you "like what you see?"
If you select yes, it will give you more info about the picture. At least my computer does that...
