A guide to walks in northern dales of the White Peak area of the Peak District National Park, England, UK, between Edale, Matlock and Buxton. In 1951 the Peak District - 555 square miles of breathing space between the cities of Manchester and Sheffield - became the UK's first National Park and rightly so. This much-loved landscape has cultural integrity, geographical variety, treasured wildlife habitats and lots of recreational opportunities. Its rockier southern half, the White Peak, takes its name from the underlying limestone and is a charming mosaic of idyllic villages, pastures, woods and valleys. The 35 walks cross the gritstone uplands and moors and explore the Wye and its tributary dales. The book offers a wide selection of easy circular routes of up to 8 miles, illustrated with OS map extracts and forms one of the first two books in Cicerone's three-volume series on the Peak District.
