Description

This guidebook provides 35 day walks and 7 longer walks and trails exploring the eastern section of Derbyshire’s limestone area. The walks are spread across the area, starting in pleasant towns and villages including Bakewell, Tissington, Eyam and Middleton. Largely travelling along well-marked paths over gentle rolling landscapes, these walks are suitable for walkers of all abilities.

The day walks range between 4 and 12 miles in length, and are illustrated with extracts of 1:50,000 OS mapping, while the longer walks and trails are covered by 1:100,000 scale mapping. Walkers can use the longer trails to link day walks into longer routes or explore the area on the three-day White Peak Circular, starting in Birchover.

While geologically fascinating with its layers of limestone and gritstone, the White Peak is also a landscape rich in history and art. These walks visit sites including medieval churches, the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Cromford Mill, and Eyam, a village devastated by plague in the 1660s. Out on the hills are stone circles and ancient sites such as the Neolithic burial site of Arbor Low.
