The photograph is of the exit drive for vehicles leaving Hardwick Hall.

The view is northerly, toward Hardwick Hall and facing oncoming traffic.
The exit from the park (seen in this photograph SK4563 : A Short Walk and which is behind and to the left of the viewpoint) is adjacent to the Hardwick Inn, a 15th century building built of locally quarried sandstone.
It is thought that Elizabeth, Countess of Shrewsbury, known more popularly as ‘Bess of Hardwick,’ built the present inn for one of her 'faithful' servants.
The inn has a web site, here LinkExternal link

The walk, which is uphill for a short distance, follows the drive northerly (ahead).
