Peak District Northern and Western Moors

Peak District Northern and Western Moors

by: Roly Smith
This guide is one of the 'Freedom to Roam' series published in partnership with the Ramblers' Association. These guides celebrate the arrival of our new legal rights to walk at will on mountain top, moorland and heath in England and Wales. By definition, these guides are less prescriptive than is usual and are designed to help you discover areas of the countryside which you haven't legally walked on before, advising you on routes you might want to take and telling you about places of interest along the way. In areas where it can be tricky to find routes or track down landmarks more detailed instructions are offered. Elsewhere directions are deliberately less precise, allowing you to choose your own path or line to follow. For each walk, however, there is a recommended core route. It follows that these guides assume competence with map and compass and some experience of hill walking.
This well-illustrated guide contains directions and Ordnance Survey 1:25,000 maps for twelve new walks on the wild moors and tors of the northern and western Peak District, the scene of much of the early campaigning for the right of access to open country. It includes all you need to know about the fascinating history, landscapes and wildlife of the area.
The walk locations are: Bleaklow West; Bleaklow South; Kinder West; Kinder summit and the Wool Packs; Kinder's northern edges; Win Hill; Ward's Piece and the Great Ridge; Lyme Park; Combs Edge; Goyt Valley; Shutlingsloe; The Roaches and Gradbach.
