Product Description


A guide to walking in northern dales of the White Peak area of the Peak District National Park between Edale, Matlock and Buxton. 35 walks are included in this guide, between 3 and 9 miles long, illustrated with OS map extracts. From Castleton and Winnats Pass gorge, down to Lathkill Dale and Matlock Spa, the northern section of the White Peak offers variety and beauty and is waiting to be explored. The White Peak is the name given to the rocky southern area of the Peak District, for its pale underlying limestone. The result is a landscape of escarpments, heather moorlands, wooded valleys and the roll of hillsides and plateaux. Idyllic villages dot the walks with pubs standing by for refreshing walkers after a good walk.
