Although my husband, Andrew, and I currently live in South Yorkshire, we are only 200 metres from the Derbyshire border and very close to Nottinghamshire. Indeed, I have lived all my life in and around Sheffield and Manchester. Historic Walks in Derbyshire is my third walking guide, following Walking in Sherwood Forest and the Dukeries (Cicerone Press) and Discovery Walks in North East Derbyshire (Sigma Press), which were both inspired by a desire to explore new local walks as an alternative to the Peak District, to which the majority of walkers living in Sheffield are automatically drawn.
Walking guidebook to 60 circular day walks in Derbyshire and the Peak District. Includes the Derwent, Wye and Trent river valleys, near Derby, Matlock, Glossop, Bakewell and Ripley. Routes range from easy to moderate and are between 4 and 14km (2 to 10 miles). Walks focus on places of interest, from Stone Age forts to castles to grand estates.
