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.

This walk begins and ends in the popular Peak District town of Bakewell and is approximately 5 ½ miles in length.  It takes in mature woodland, rolling parkland and the chocolate box village of Edensor, on the spectacular Chatsworth Estate.  Most of the paths are well-walked and marked, but some through the woodland are less defined and can be slippery in wet weather, especially on the hilly parts. The easiest place to begin is at the back of the large modern cattle market (Grid Ref SK2268, Post code DE45 1BU) off Coombs...
Bakewell Circular Walk - Woods and Parklands
Most people heading for the Peak District aim for the dramatic scenery of the higher moors of the Dark Peak or the sheltered Dales, but this walk, easily accessible from Sheffield or Chesterfield, is just as lovely and makes a change from the tourist hot-spots.  Not that it isn’t popular; any fine Sunday throughout the year will find families enjoying a stroll through the woodland near the main Linacre car park, but this walk sets out from a less obvious starting point. Our walk begins in the village of Old Brampton, a...
Winter can be a wonderful time to walk in the Peak District, with crisp, frosty mornings, winter sunshine, and even a sprinkling of snow can add a new dimension to a walk. There are a few simple considerations that will help ensure you have a safe and enjoyable experience.  These relate to winter countryside walking at low levels, not winter mountain walking in snow which requires specialist technical equipment and skills.  1. Keep yourself warm and dry.  It might sound obvious, but the English weather can change...
Top Ten Tips for Winter Walking – From Peak Walking Adventures
Above Stoney Middleton Time taken – 1 hour This walk was taken on a rainy Sunday afternoon in mid-December and was intended to be short and quick walk around Stoney Middleton and whilst not the longest walk I have taken opened my eyes to the beauty that the hills behind the Stoney “corridor” have to offer. Humphrey and his little chum Ash set off from Trinkey Lane, by the allotments towards The Nook and Moon Inn, via a grassy path that runs securely by the road and ends at the Moon Inn car park. We then...

Stoney Middleton and Coombsdale Time taken - 2 hours Having and allotment at Stoney Middleton , in the Peak District, for some time now, I have tried part of this walk on a number of occasions, with Mable – taking her over to Calver Sough Nurseries for seeds and the like on warm summer days, Since Mable passed away, I have used the car to traverse what really is a very short ride from Stoney to Calver traffic lights. It has only been since the arrival of Humphrey that I have sought safe avenues to walk “Mad Dog...
Stoney Middleton via Coombsdale - Peak District Walks
Eyam via Bretton Time taken 2 1/2 hours This is a great walk if you don’t mind a stiff walk uphill at the start, out of Eyam on Hawkhill Road. It is also a great walk when you have a dog (Humphrey - my Rain Rescue lovely) that pulls like a train and who is daft enough to pull you all the way to the top! Humphrey, for anyone who has read some of my other pages on Peak District Online has now been with me two months and is thoroughly enjoying his new life in this fabulous area. He has new friends to walk with and lots of...
Eyam via Bretton - Peak District Walks
This is a wonderful short walk of about 4 miles amongst some of the best scenery that The White Peak has to offer.  It is one of our most popular guided Nature Walks. A good place to start is the green in the centre of the pretty village of Monyash.  Dominating the green are the 'King' and 'Queen' trees, planted to celebrate the coronation of King George V and Queen Mary in 1910.  Next to the trees, look out for the war memorial, and a market cross, the base of which dates back to the 14th century when Monyash was granted a...
Delightful Dales with Peak Walking Adventures
Four to Five-and-a-Half Miles Easy paths and quiet lanes, but some boggy ground and steep climbs up to the rocks.   This walk takes in the fascinating small nature reserve at Goldsitch Moss and some classic Peak District rock formations. There is no official car park at Goldsitch Moss but if you turn off the A53 opposite the former Royal Cottage Inn, (The pub sign is still displayed on the front elevation) down a very minor road, you will come to a square of hard-standing set back on left-hand...
Goldsitch Moss to Ramshaw Rocks
Tideswell via Monk’s Dale Time Taken: 2 hours To celebrate Humphrey’s fourth weekend living in The Peak District, I decided to make the most of a lovely November day to walk locally around Tideswell and out into the countryside beyond.  As always he was hyper, as even being walked twice a day does not make up yet, for what I believe was a lack of walking in a previous life. As a rescue dog, I know very little of his life prior to being taken in by Rain Rescue in Rotherham apart from what they had experinced...
Tideswell via Monk's Dale - Peak District Walks
Start at: Parwich . Grid ref: SK 187 544 . Difficulty: Easy . Distance: 8 km . From the centre of Parwich head along Dam Lane to where it bends to the right. Take the footpath on the left here and follow it through the fields for just over a kilometre ignoring paths heading off. Approaching Parish Lees go between the two small groups of trees to join a main track and a right turn onto Dam Lane again. Turn right and head towards Parwich but after a few metres a path on the left provides a way on. Follow the path to a crossroads and...
