 Derbyshire - Peak District Walks

The Peak District was the first National Park and the setting in 1932 for the deliberate  mass trespass of Kinder Scout as a protest against landowners who denied public access to their land. It was a defining moments which led to the formation of The Ramblers and the legislation which allows for the access to the countryside we enjoy today.

In some ways, the Peak District is a victim of its own success and its easy accessibility from so many surrounding cities can make it very busy especially in the “honeypots” such as Castleton and Bakewell.

Nevertheless, the determined walker can still escape the crowds and enjoy the moorland, hills and dales in relative tranquillity.

It has some dramatic edges such as Stannage Edge and Kinder Scout mentioned above is over 2000 feet high.

The Peak District is sometimes known as the Derbyshire Dales.
