Produced in association with the Ramblers, this walking guide covers the popular Peak District and combines detailed route descriptions with information on local history and wildlife. The Peak District boasts an unrivaled network of around 1,400 miles of public rights-of-way and over 80 square miles of open access on the northern moors. This guide allows the reader to explore the infinite variety of walking opportunities, which range from gentle riverside strolls to tough moorland treks. The introduction gives information about the topography, geology, and history of the area and describes the flora and fauna inhabiting it. The main section of the book comprises 30 walks, each including a key illustrating principal features such as level of difficulty and type of terrain, a route profile indicating altitude and distances, and a fact file summarizing useful information such as start and finish points, duration, safety advice, and points of interest. Illustrated with color maps from the Ordnance Survey, each walk is then described in detail with clear, easy-to-follow instructions. As well as route descriptions, the text gives the history of the main landmarks along the way plus information on the natural history of the area, and is accompanied by stunning color photographs. This updated edition also includes an overview map displaying starting points for all walks, color codes to indicate each route's level of difficulty, and a key for symbols used in the text and on the route maps.
