Peak District Walks

Fri Jan 20 11:23:47 GMT 2012
We LOVE low temp's, so we set off to Great Longstone, where the walk started. These fish seemed quite happy under the ice in a trough outside one of the village cottages.

Most people heading for the Peak District aim for the dramatic scenery of the higher moors of the Dark Peak or the sheltered Dales, but this walk, easily accessible from Sheffield or Chesterfield, is just as lovely and makes a change from the tourist hot-spots.  Not that it isn’t popular; any fine Sunday throughout the year will find...

This area can get...
