The White Peak has some of the most iconic walking spots in the whole of the Peak District, select som eof our favourites from our archives.
This walk takes place close to the Staffordshire and Derbyshire border and takes in a section of the River Dove and the pretty villages of Alstonefield and Milldale.
Bakewell straddles the River Wye and sits snugly between the rolling limestone hills of the White Peak and the dramatic escarpments and moors of Dark Peak gritstone.
This walk follows an old coach road from Baslow on a hike to the hills and moors onto Curbar Gap before descending to the River Derwent.
Eyam and Stoney Middleton
This walk is a wander along old paths and tracks between two picturesque Eyam and Stoney Middleton with interesting histories and a staunch community spirit that continues in the present day.
The village of Flagg – thought to have been established by the Vikings – is surrounded by a cobweb of paths, tracks and green lanes, prepare to be surrounded by a patchwork of fields enclosed by mile upon mile of painstakingly created drystone walls, extending as far as the eye can see.
Hartington is surrounded by limestone hills and a ridge of gritstone, combine the local farming landscape and an old packhorse route on this leisurely walk.
Snuggled into the hills, the sleepy village of Middleton appears unchanged from years gone by, its quaint little cottages choc-a-bloc with charm and character. The finale of this walk is to follow the River Bradford upstream.
Beginning with a riverside amble beside the Wye, this walk gently ascends to White Peak upland to enjoy far- reaching views over a truly magnificent landscape. After passing through a succession of fields and stiles, the route then zig-zags steeply down a section of the Pennine Bridleway to finish with a stretch of easy walking along part of the famous Monsal Trail.
This walk follows old paths and tracks as well as sections of the Limestone Way and Monsal Trail on a route that heads over the hills to weave around the Wye.
Mainly following paths, tracks and quiet country lanes, this walk is an exploration of Winster which is tucked away in the limestone hills followed by Birchover that nestles on the edge of a sandstone oasis topped by mystical, magical Stanton Moor.
