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.

Time taken: 1 ½ hours. Mable travels to Great Hucklow and Foolow This walk starts at Mable’s village of work, not far from the Queen Anne pub in Great Hucklow . It’s mainly a gentle stroll across farm tracks, but allows you to take in some great views and has the potential for spotting gliders above Abney’s gliding club. It is a local walk for us, well worn, but never boring as there is plenty of wildlife to watch out for and at this time of year, early summer, there is so much bird song that it can be...

2 1/2 hours Mable savours Cressbrook Dale and Litton This to me is a special local walk as it takes in some scenery that I have been in awe of since moving to the Peak District. It takes in the beautiful Cressbrook Dale with its magnificent limestone walls and outcrops plus the majestic Peters Stone, so named due to its resemblance to St Peter’s Basilica, standing proudly at one end, near Wardlow Mires.   Peter’s Stone is infamous as it stands within The Gibbet Field where the last gibbeting...

Tideswell to Tideswell via Wheston -Mable's view Time taken:  1 1/2 hour This walk to me is home to home, it’s a local walk for us and one that makes me realise how lucky we are; how lucky we are to be able to step out from our door step and walk into pure Peak District National Park country beauty and onto the Pennine Bridleway. If you start this walk from the centre of Tideswell, from the Church square you head off towards Manchester Road, , which if you follow the main road round leads off to the left, passed Market...

Calver to Calver – via Froggat, Time taken 1 1/2 Hours This is a walk that really starts in a simple cow field, after the caravan site, but with a massive WOW factor. This walk has the majestic back drop of Froggatt and Curbar edge’s, something that when I remember to look up always leaves fills me with amazement and awe!     The walk actually starts at Calver Mill, walking through the camp site into the fields, with the river to the right.  You walk across the field, to the...
