Derbyshire and Peak District - A Dog Walker's Guide

Derbyshire and Peak District - A Dog Walker's Guide

by: Peter Naldrett
On a fine day there is nothing quite so enjoyable for dog owners than getting out into the countryside with their pet for a leisurely walk Once you get off your home patch, though, it is hard to know where you can walk safely with your dog and which pubs and cafes will welcome you both.

Here is a collection of 20 tried and tested circular walks, varying in length between 2 and 5.75 miles, in the beautiful Countryside of Derbyshire and the Peak District. The walks have been designed with maximum off-lead time and minimum exposure to roads. There are walks over rolling hills and wide open countryside with wonderful views; through ancient woodland; delightful parkland and beautiful valleys; beside tranquil rivers and impressive reservoirs; and around picturesque villages and historic buildings.

All the walks include details of dog factors such as livestock and stiles, recommended dog friendly pubs and cafes and contact details for the nearest vets. Other practical information includes distance, terrain, where to park, how to get there and nearest refreshments. The route finding instructions are in clear numbered paragraphs supported by a coloured sketch map with corresponding location numbers. There are also many colour photographs.
