Peak District Year Round Walks

Peak District Year Round Walks

by: Peter Naldrett
There just isn't a bad time to walk in the Peak District, each season offers something new. The twenty circular walks in this book vary in length from 2 to 8 miles and are enjoyable all year round. The author has divided the routes into seasons to show each at its very best. In spring, the fields around Monyash are golden with cowslips and the woods near Hayfield are a sea of bluebells. On a fine day in summer there are wonderful views over the hilltops, and the moorland around Edale is purple with heather. Autumn brings colour to the Tissington Trail and the reservoirs near Holme are a splendid place to sea migrant birds. To appreciate the special atmosphere of the Derwent Valley you should visit in winter. Whenever you manage to pay a visit to the nation's oldest national park you will be rewarded with stunning scenery and some excellent pubs and charming villages.

The book is produced in full colour with lots of photographs. Each walk entry begins with a description of the terrain, Ordnance Survey Explorer map sheet references, starting point with grid reference, how to get there and parking and refreshment options. The following route finding instructions are laid out in precise numbered paragraphs and are supported by clear sketch maps showing the location of each paragraph number. For each walk an introductory description of its main features is included plus notes on what to look out for.
