Description

Walks South Peak District features walks in the gentler, southern half of the Peak District National Park; an area of low, green hills intersected by narrow valleys.

The area’s limestone is worked into numerous rock formations notably the famous spires and caves in Dovedale, and the long, low ‘edges’ above Curbar and Baslow. The main towns in the area are Buxton and Bakewell, but the walks pass numerous picturesque villages, as well as the splendid stately home of Chatsworth House.

Walks range from 2 to 7.5 miles (3-12kms). Routes include Curbar Edge, Bakewell to Chatsworth, Thor’s Cave & Wetton Hill, Dovedale and Mill Dale and The Roaches. This guide is part of a popular series of A6 pocket walking guides which describe routes which are suitable for walkers of all abilities and to suit all tastes. Route descriptions are accompanied by 2-colour sketch maps. The guides are illustrated with line illustrations, and will provide walkers with a good introduction to what each area covered has to offer.
