The routes in this guide are 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.
