Peak District Walks with History - Top 10 Walks Guidebook

by: Dennis Kelsall
Today's pastoral setting often belies the activity of the past. Yet almost everywhere you go there are traces of man's earlier endeavours that have now become an integral part of the landscape. This collection of walks invites you to step back in time with your imagination to explore some of the historic spots that have helped make the Peak District countryside the rich tapestry that it is today.

The ten walks in this attractive pocket guide have been chosen to provide fascinating locations from different period of our history including Bronze Age, Iron Age, Norman, Medieval, 16th and 17th centuries, Industrial Revolution and Victorian.
