50 Walks in Derbyshire

50 Walks in Derbyshire

by: John Gillham and Andrew McCloy
Derbyshire has four distinct regions: The Dark Peak, upland country formed by the silt from great rivers; the White Peak, an underlying layer of limestone formed when Derbyshire was beneath a tropical sea; the Northeast Derbyshire coalfields; and the clay and sandstone plains of the Trent. It is these contrasts of landscape that makes Derbyshire such a fine place for walking, whether it's a mammoth mountain hike, or just a stroll through the woods.

This guide explores some of the best of Derbyshire's countryside. It includes 50 themed walks of between 2 and 10 miles, each with fascinating background reading. There are clear, easy-to-follow route descriptions and full colour detailed sketch maps for every walk. Each walk chapter is prefaced by a practical information panel and then a section with interesting information on what to look out for during the walk. Details of places to eat and drink are provided, including guidance for dog owners on where to walk and dog-friendly establishments.
