Walking In Peak District

Walking in the Peak District offers a diverse and delightful mixture of countryside from which to choose. You may prefer to trek across exposed moorland where walkers now have more freedom to roam, thanks to the recently introduced Access rights. Alternatively there are easier paths to pursue, especially around the White Peak where walkers can descend into the Derbyshire Dales and follow riverside paths, woodland tracks or simply cross fields and stiles over an undulating landscape with glorious far-reaching views. The Peak District is carefully managed by the National Park Authority and local Councils, with the emphasis on providing a safe and enjoyable environment whilst successfully retaining a balance between visitors and the conservation and preservation of its countryside, flora, fauna and wildlife.

Walks in the Peak District here is a far different prospect. Peak District towns and villages are steeped in history and character, with some offering walk guides for visitors to wander around at will and to explore, investigate or just appreciate the wonderful architecture,curiosities and to hopefully gain an insight into Derbyshire past and present.

Mable finds another route to Eyam from Foolow, via Bretton Time taken – 2 hours This is yet another walk that starts in the Peak District village of Foolow and when accompanied by her best friends is one that Mable enjoys to the full. There is a lot of road walking, I am afraid, but the roads are generally quiet and so long as you take care I have found that the dogs can meander off the lead, quite safely for most of it. Starting in Foolow, just follow the road up to The Barrel at Bretton. This is the main...
Foolow to Eyam, via Bretton - Peak District Walks
Approximate Time: 2.5 to 3 hours This is a very straightforward and fairly short walk through one of the Peak Districts most beautiful dales, and is suitable for walkers of all age groups as it has little climbing. Lathkill Dale is the Peak Districts most central dale, with a huge variety of wildlife and geological features. The walk begins at a small car park just outside the village of Monyash, on the right hand side of the B5055 heading towards Bakewell. There are some public toilets there as well.       The path...

Mable journeys from Foolow To Eyam Time Taken – 2 hours I love this almost linear walk and Mable and I have done it on many occasions, in both directions, being ex-Eyam residents and with our best friends living in Foolow. Its gentle and easy yet still scenic, offering some gorgeous Peak District views up to Bretton and across to Wardlow and Cressbrook Dale , as you progress in both directions. It is also nearly all off road, apart from the very start and finish, in Foolow, so Mable can spend the majority of it off lead...

Mable attempts Froggatt Edge via Curbar Time taken - 4 hours Of the walks we tend to do together now, this has probably been the most challenging for Mable as there is an element of uphill walking involved, initially, and whilst she was as fit and flighty as a flea in her youth, she has struggled in the last few years with general health problems that now limit the amount of exercise she can partake in. Apart from the incline at the start, however, the majority of the walk is quite level and easy but it was just a little too long...
Froggat Edge via Curbar - Peak District Walks
Mable’s trip to Abney Time taken 3 hours Being a Peak District resident of Tideswell and a worker in Great Hucklow, with friends in Foolow, and also being an ex- resident of Eyam, Mable is very familiar with this walk having taken it on many a spring or autumn weekend afternoon. It is a walk that can be started in Great Hucklow, Foolow or at Bretton, by The Barrel, depending on your inclination and the difference is merely time – it’s always a great walk, from whatever starying point, with constantly changing...
Bretton to Abney - Peak District Walks
Mable takes on Castleton and Mam Tor Time taken: 2 hours This is a walk which starts with a walk, if you know what I mean. It is one that requires Mable and I to drive and park up in Castleton, which, depending on time of the day; week; year, is not always an easy feat! Castleton is a fabulous Peak District village, quite often bustling with visitors but always quaint and well worth a visit especially when combined with a country walk around it. If it wasn’t for the fact that Mable doesn’t get on with shoppers...
Castleton via Mam Tor - Peak District Walks
Mable sees that Hope springs eternal as she ventures to Castleton. Time taken 1. 5 - 2 Hours This is a walk of two halves for me, one half on the outward section, shows the full glory of nature and the splendours of the some of the finest scenery in the Peak District. The second inward stretch shows some fine scenery but also shows how man can, out of human necessity, create a complete blot on a landscape – building, as Prince Charles once said, a “monstrous carbuncle”, this time in the form of Hope Cement...

Mable returns to old pastures on Stanage Edge via Hathersage Time taken: 3.5 hours This is a Peak District walk I have wanted to do for some time after seeing the millstone grit escarpment, at Stanage Edge, in a Pride and Prejudice film.  I cannot say I have ever seen Mr Darcy’s “Pemberley” from the top, but when previously a Sheffield resident I have, with Mable, quite often scared myself silly when looking over the Edge at the climbers who congregate to climb its craggy face. As ex- city...
Hathersage to Stanage Edge - Peak District Walks
We are extremely lucky in England, having excellent legal rights for walking in the countryside , but do you know exactly where you can and can’t walk without upsetting landowners or breaking the law? There are basically two things that give us a legal right to walk somewhere – public rights of way, and Access Land.  There are also specially negotiated arrangements on permissive paths where we have no legal right, but access is by the agreement of the landowner.  Public rights of way We can...
