White Peak Walks: The Northern Dales

35 walks in the Derbyshire White Peak

By Mark Richards

This guidebook describes 35 circular walks cross the gritstone uplands and moors in the northern dales of the White Peak between Edale, Matlock and Buxton, in the middle of the Peak District National Park. Routes explore Bakewell and the Wye and its tributary dales. One of two Cicerone guides to the White Peak.

Seasons

The exquisite beauty of this landscape is fringed by and adorned with a multitude of wild flowers in spring and summer. Although modern clothing and equipment enable you to experience the thrill of wilder weather, responsible walker should seek to minimise their impact especially on heavily worn paths in the wetter seasons.

Centres

Castleton, Hope, Bradwell, Hathersage, Baslow, Tideswell, Bakewell, Buxton, Monyash, Youlgrave, Winster, Matlock Spa and Cromford

Difficulty

easy, circular walks on good paths, well waymarked, between 3 and 8 miles long, easy to combine into longer routes - simple country walking with the odd citrus twist in the limestone dales! Modern walking boots will give good protection in such stony situations and walking poles lend reassurance in descent.
