|The authors are experts in the superb walking opportunities in the Dark Peak and the authentic pubs that welcome ramblers with a wide range of "real ales" and hearty, home-cooked food - perfect after a ramble in these wild and windswept surroundings. There is a good range of walks in this book from around 5 to 10 miles in length, well scattered over the entire Dark Peak from Chapel-en-le-Frith in the south to Holmfirth in the north, and from Marple in the west to beyond Stocksbridge in the east. The walks are easily accessible from major conurbations, including Macclesfield, Glossop, Marple, Castleton and Sheffield. Most are served by public transport, and all are circular.
Distance: 3 to 11 miles
