Peak District Walks from Train Stations Guidebook

Peak District Walks from Train Stations Guidebook

author: Peter Naldrett
This collection of 20 circular Peak District walks gives you the chance to explore our wonderful national park by existing train services as well as delving into the history of villages which had their rail link closed. Catch the TransPennine Express to wonderful walking centres such as Grindleford, Edale, Bamford, and Hathersage to explore the best in rivers, moors and villages that the Peak District has to offer. Dig into the region's past by visiting train stations long since closed, like Tissington, Bakewell and Millers Dale. Explore the heritage of a bygone era by walking from disused lines now known as the Tissington Trail and the Monsal Trail. Walk through renovated tunnels, stand on abandoned platforms, and see railway remnants left over from the age of steam.

These are accessible trails that take in some fabulous countryside and enjoy some of the finest views in the country. Each walk comes with background information about the surrounding places and an insight into the station's history. There are tips for places to get food and drink and old photographs to give you an idea what this area used to be like when more trains criss-crossed through the hills. This collection of fabulous rural walks is an ideal way to be green, enjoy great hikes, and learn about the Peak's industrial past. The rail lines and walk locations are listed below:
