Day Walks in the Peak District

Day Walks in the Peak District

by: Norman Taylor and Barry Pope
The walks described in this guide all fall within the Peak District National Park. They are evenly spread throughout the area, and reflect the great variety of landscape, flora, fauna and human settlement within the National Park boundary.

All the walks are 'day walks' in the sense that they take 5 to 6 hours to complete at an unhurried pace. They fall into three broad categories of terrain: walks on the high moors, walks on lower lying hills, tors or edges and walks in limestone country. A summary for each walk describes the specific terrain involved, the amount of ascent and the level of navigation skills required.

This guide is a visual delight with lots of stunning colour photography throughout and full colour OS Explorer 1:25,000 mapping of all the routes. Each walk chapter begins with an introduction to the walk, describing its features and places of interest. Distance and navigation information, starting grid reference and refreshment stops are provided. This is followed by a detailed route finding section with numbered paragraphs linked to numbers on the OS route maps. The book is researched, written and tested by dedicated walking guides with decades of local experience.
