Waterside Walking in the Peak District
The walks visit all the major water features in the Peak District, organised into five areas, with clear instructions on travel as well on the walk route itself. Once completed, the reader will have enjoyed and understood the key aspects of how rivers (with mills, weirs and underground caverns) shape the landscape, how the canals were built and supplied with water, and how our drinking water reservoirs are managed.
