“A comprehensive guidebook to the county of Derbyshire. The 60 circular day walks range from 2 to 10 miles long, over a wide variety of terrain, offering something for walkers of all abilities. The walks start from bases all over the area including Glossop, Buxton, Bakewell, Matlock, Ripley, Ashbourne and Derby, to historic sites including Hardwick Hall, Kedleston Hall, Eyam, Chatsworth House, New Mills, Cromford, Goyt Valley and Dovedale. Routes pass remnants of ancient civilisations, fine market towns and villages, caverns, castles, country houses and parklands, historic spa resorts and industrial heritage sites, and the book is full of background information detailing the local history. The routes are illustrated with OS map extracts and accompanied with the author’s own photographs.”
