Short Walks in the Peak District

Short Walks in the Peak District

by Brian Spencer
The Peak District, with its two very different landscapes: the gentle limestone White Peak with its intimate wooded dales and steep-sided gorges; and the wilder more dramatic gritstone Dark Peak with its wild moorland offer some superb walking areas. This guide, produced in co-operation with the Ramblers and featuring 1:25000 scale Ordnance Survey Explorer mapping, is the perfect way to get out and enjoy this stunning scenery
.
