Waterside Walks in the Peak District

Waterside Walks in the Peak District

by: Charles Wildgoose
Water always adds something special to a walk and the Peak District has some significant waterways to explore. The 20 circular routes in this book are all between 3 and 6.75 miles in length. They take the walker beside these waterways and through some of the most memorable scenery in England.

Using this book as a guide, you can stroll by delightful stretches of the Etherow, Tame, Rivelin, Derwent, Wye, Dane, Dove and Manifold rivers and the Huddersfield Narrow Canal and Macclesfield Canal. There is plenty of opportunity to enjoy the many beautiful reservoirs and lakes in the area including the Derwent and Ladybower reservoirs and lovely Rudyard Lake.

Each carefully described walk includes information such as how to get to the start, where to park and where to go for refreshments. For greater clarity the route descriptions are divided into numbered paragraphs, which correspond with numbers on the accompanying coloured sketch maps. The book also includes colour photographs. There are also places of interest to visit along the way such as Lyme Park with its stunning gardens; Millers Dale Quarry, a site of Special Scientific Interest; and the unique estate village of Ilam.
