National Parks - The Peak District Top 10 Walks

National Parks - The Peak District Top 10 Walks

by: Dennis Kelsall and Chiz Dakin
Here, packed into a single pocket sized book, are the ten absolute best short circular walks in the Peak District National Park. They have been carefully selected to showcase the finest and most enjoyable walks across the Peak District. These ten themed walks explore the contrasting faces of the Peaks; the gentle White and rugged Dark Peak.

Discover clear rivers and streams, ancient packhorse bridges and stepping stones. Walk through winding dales and valleys bright with wildflowers. Visit stately Chatsworth or marvel at the panorama from Monsal Head. Tour upland reservoirs and dramatic rocky edges popular with climbers. Slog up Shutlingsloe or explore the open moorlands and strangely eroded tors on Kinder Edge. Every route is a walk to remember.

This little pocket guide is produced in full colour with an emphasis on stunning professional photography. Each route has clear easy-to-follow numbered instructions and full colour OS Explorer 1:25,000 mapping. At the beginning of each walk chapter there is a box giving all the practical information you require, such as distance, a time estimate, start location with grid reference, OS map sheet number and details of any refreshment facilities. A summary of each walk is also provided. All the walks are circular. There are also fascinating facts about places along the way.
