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.

Distance: 6.7 miles Approximate Time: 3-4 hours Altitude: 1683 ft   This is a moderate Peak District circular walk with a fair amount of altitude.

Hidden Lanes from Monyash – 9 to 11 miles (with options)   Monyash, once a nerve centre for lead mining in the middle portion of the Peak District, is connected to its outlying farms, neighbouring villages, ancient mines and monuments by a complicated network of lanes.

Others still have vanished altogether.   This circular walk...

  To celebrate the summer solstice longest day shortest night a group of intrepid soul up for something different opted to spend the night under the stars somewhere on Mount Snowdon.

Monyash to Over Haddon Via Lathkill Dale
A short walk, but still one which provides good exercise as, depending on which way you tackle it, the pull up Eccles Pike is one which will probably make you puff, yet it is well-worth the effort, for the views from the summit are truly panoramic.   Begin at The Navigation Inn in Buxworth, (also known as Bugsworth) and its historic canal basin; with your back to the inn and facing the basin, begin by walking to the left a little way along the canal-side to cross a high-rise footbridge over the A6. This will lead you through a...
A Walk from Buxworth Basin to Eccles Pike
  One of our most popular guided walks, and many would argue that 'The Great Ridge' is the finest walk in the Peak District!    We often start this walk from the village of Hope, and follow low level paths through meadows to the village of Castleton, famous for its castle and Blue John Caves.  To reach the summit of Mam Tor we have the option of either a steep ascent to the top of towering limestone cliffs high above Winnats Pass with breathtaking views, or an easier path which winds its way up the hillside through...

Mable meanders from Grindleford to Hathersage Time taken - 3 hours This walk, from Grindleford out to Hathersage and back, in its various forms, has been a long time summer favourite for Mable, in her menu of Peak District walks, as half of it is taken alongside her favourite natural element – water! The River Derwent runs through Grindleford on the north edge of the Peak District,  and as it is mostly shallow and slow running, has been a great play pool for her on hot days, high days and holidays.

Grindleford via Hathersage - Peak District Walks
3 hours - Mable journeys from Grindleford via Froggatt. This walk starts at Grindleford Bridge, on the north side of the Peak District National Park, though Mable and I have also been very daring on occasions, and started at Froggatt , which is equally as accessible! Walking passed the traffic lights, over Grindleford Bridge as if heading to the railway station, you will find a small wooden gate on the right hand side which, surprisingly starts the walk in a sheep meadow.This field quite often contains sheep tups, which I...
