Walking in the Peak District offers a diverse and delightful mixture of countryside from which to choose. You may prefer to trek across exposed moorland where walkers now have more freedom to roam, thanks to the recently introduced Access rights.
Alternatively there are easier paths to pursue, especially around the White Peak where walkers can descend into the Derbyshire Dales and follow riverside paths, woodland tracks or simply cross fields and stiles over an undulating landscape with glorious far-reaching views.
The Peak District is carefully managed by the National Park Authority and local Councils, with the emphasis on providing a safe and enjoyable environment whilst successfully retaining a balance between visitors and the conservation and preservation of its countryside, flora, fauna and wildlife.
Walks in the Peak District here is a far different prospect. Peak District towns and villages are steeped in history and character, with some offering walk guides for visitors to wander around at will and to explore, investigate or just appreciate the wonderful architecture,curiosities and to hopefully gain an insight into Derbyshire past and present.
