Product Description

Details

A guide to walking the southern dales of the White Peak area of the Peak District between Ashbourne, Matlock, Buxton and Leek. 30 walks are included in this guide, between 3 and 10 miles, illustrated with OS map extracts. From the grounds of Ilam Hall, down through the old railway trackbed of Manifold Trail and such sights as Thor's Cave along the route, the southern 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.
