Walks for All Seasons in Derbyshire

Walks for All Seasons in Derbyshire

by: Carol Burkinshaw
This book features twenty circular walks ranging from 2.5 up to 6 miles, suitable for all the family, plus one 8-mile walk based in Chesterfield for the more adventurous walker. All the walks have been carefully chosen to deliver an enjoyable day or half day in the countryside. The theme is 'off Peak' Derbyshire, exploring the beautiful place in the county mainly outside of the Peak District. The 'Basics' panel which accompanies each route will help you choose walks within your family's abilities and you can always work up to longer ones as your experience develops. Note too that the 'Start Point' information gives a postcode for satellite navigation users, although in a few cases, where this is in open countryside, these may be only approximate.

Each walk begins with a description of the local area, followed by fully detailed route instructions. Full colour Ordnance Survey 1:25000 scale Explorer mapping supports the text and there are snippets of useful information as you go along. The book also has lots of colour photographs throughout. At the beginning of each walk practical information listed includes distance, gradient, difficulty, approximate time, number of stiles, OS Explorer map number, path description, start point grid reference, parking information, suitability for dogs and local refreshment facilities and public toilets.
