Les Lumsdon and Martin Smith have written a book of wonderful walks and real ale in the Peak District!
Best Pub Walks in the White Peak 2nd Edition
This book (completely updated in 2005) features Peak District pubs well-known for their welcome to walkers. They all supply real ale from local independent brewers or other "approved" sources, and are ideal starting points for a superb variety of walks in splendid scenery.
The 30 fabulous walks range from three to nine miles and are ideal for family rambles. They start in such delightful Peak District villages as Ashford-in-the-Water, Alstonefield and Youlgreave, and most are accessible by public transport, so there are no problems for car drivers.
The book is packed with information on the Peak District. Many local attractions are featured, including the National Tramway Museum, Magpie Mine, the National Stone Centre and many other places of historic interest.
Distance: 4 to 9 miles
