Overview

'The Peak District has walking for everyone, ranging from strolls along gentle limestone dales with their crystal clear rivers to airy walks along the unique gritstone 'edges' with their wonderful views. At the northern end, expeditions onto forbidding high heather moorland are possible. It's a great place to be, whatever the weather! With the Peakwalking site, I aim to inspire you to pull on your boots, get walking and explore this wonderful little bit of England.' ALERT Site apparently not updated since February 2012.

Overview

'The Phoenix Greenways link the Five Pits, Silverhill and Pleasley-Teversal Trails. You can enjoy these easy-access off-road routes and quiet lanes to visit countryside and local attractions. Many of these trails and country parks were old pits and railways and like the Phoenix rising from the ashes, nature is once again flourishing with our care.'
