The Walks

This is what you're here for!

The site currently contains details of 26 walks, which are linked below. All the routes start from a recognised car parking area. Many are also accessible by public transport, details of which can be found by visiting Peak Connections or the Derbyshire County Council website.

Planning a walk

Each walk comes with full directions to enable you to find your way and most also have a photograph or two so you get a feel for the area. Each page also has a link to the site which brings up a map centred on the start point. The 'zoom' tool can then be used to make the scale smaller or (in some cases) larger. The arrow in the centre of the map indicates the start point. In most cases, the walk isn't all shown on the 'streetmap' page at once but you can navigate around to see it all.

For taking with you on a walk I recommend the Ordnance Survey 'Explorer' series map. This is at a scale of 1:25,000, which means it contains much more detail than the 1:50,000 'Outdoor Leisure' version. The one you need for most of the walks is "Explorer OL24, White Peak". Where a walk needs a different map, this is noted in the walk details. It's best to print out the route details then plot the route on the OS map before you set out. Use a combination of my directions and the map to guide you on the walk - never rely on my directions alone as they can't help if you accidentally wander off the route.

The distances given for the walks are approximate, as are the times - always allow plenty of time so that you can enjoy the countryside at your leisure!

I've walked all the routes and am confident the directions are accurate. However, the countryside is a living, changing environment so please contact me if you find anything which has changed, as this enables me to make sure the routes are always kept up to date.
