Distance (miles)10
Overview

'What makes Derwent Edge particularly special for me are the rocky tors that are sprinkled along the route. These weathered gritstone outcrops form all manner of wonderful shapes, with equally colourful names - Salt Cellar, Cakes of Bread and Wheelstones. It is difficult and even unfair to select favourites, but the walk along Derwent Edge is truly wonderful. It's a good long walk and high enough that you can feel the air and space around you ...'

'The 1932 Mass Trespass on Kinder Scout has been described as the most significant event in the century-old battle for the Right to Roam on Britain’s mountains and moorlands, now enshrined in law under the 2000 Countryside and Rights of Way Act ...
