What could be better than a country walk with the reward of afternoon tea? This guidebook contains twenty-six varied and attractive walks suitable for all the family.
June and Norman Buckley describe them with accurate instructions, clear sketch maps and delightful photographs. To add to the pleasure, each walk includes one or more tea shops; ranging from a homely farmhouse kitchen to a converted cotton mill. The walks are spaced throughout the Peak District. There are strolls in the peaceful valleys of Dovedale, Lathkill Dale and Miller's Dale, high-level walks up Shutlingsloe, the `Matterhorn of Cheshire', and along the Roaches, and visits to such typical Peakland towns and villages as Bakewell and Tissington. Readers can even visit Chatsworth with its mansion and rolling parkland a truly varied collection of walks!
In addition to the basic information concerning route and tea shop, each walk includes appropriate notes on the landscape, local social and industrial history, interesting features met along the way, and facilities available for visitors.
