This guide is the first part of a two-volume survey designed to balance the marvellous diversity and wealth of walking country contained in the Peak District National Park. These high peak walks encompass the Dark Peak moors of Black Hill, Bleaklow, Kinder Scout, the higher eastern edges and the annexed western gritstone uplands from Windgather to The Roaches. The present area is characterised by great swelling moorland composed of sandstones and shales capped by a coarse gritstone, known as Millstone Grit, outcropping along plateau edges and scarps. Gritstone is pervious, but a climatic quirk caused a thin impervious sedimentation to stop water penetration and triggered the formation of a thick blanket of peat over the Pennine uplands. Twenty-two day- long walks and one linear challenge walk, carefully researched and described, offer walkers a practical and entertaining means of acquainting themselves with this popular moorland region. Each walk is designed to embrace particular localities, drawing on the contrasting qualities of each to sustain interest and develop an appreciation of the wild, dramatic and often shy beauty peculiar to this northern sector of Peakland. As circular walks they comply to no rigid form, walkers being at liberty to embellish the routes to suit their own inclinations.

A guide to walking the southern dales of the White Peak area of the Peak District, England UK, between Ashbourne, Matlock, Buxton and Leek. In 1951 the Peak District - 555 square miles of breathing space between the cities of Manchester and Sheffield - became the UK's first National Park and rightly so. This much-loved landscape has cultural integrity, geographical variety, treasured wildlife habitats and lots of recreational opportunities. Its rockier southern half, the White Peak, takes its name from the underlying limestone and is a charming mosaic of idyllic villages, pastures, woods and valleys. The walks in this guide explore both the high rolling plateau and the seclusion of the side dales, following the twists and turns of the Dove, Manifold and Hamps rivers. The book offers a wide selection of easy circular routes of up to 10 miles, illustrated with OS map extracts and forms one of the first two books in Cicerone's three-volume series on the Peak District.
