Dog Walks in Hope

This is one of the most spectacular parts of the Peak District, based on the border between the White Peak and the Dark Peak, so there are plenty of places to enjoy dog walks in Hope.

A walk above Hope - Peak District Walks
Mable sees that Hope springs eternal as she ventures to Castleton. Time taken 1. 5 - 2 Hours This is a walk of two halves for me, one half on the outward section, shows the full glory of nature and the splendours of the some of the finest scenery in the Peak District. The second inward stretch shows some fine scenery but also shows how man can, out of human necessity, create a complete blot on a landscape – building, as Prince Charles once said, a “monstrous carbuncle”, this time in the form of Hope Cement...
