Walks North Peak District features walks around Castleton, Edale and the Upper Derwent Valley, in the northern part of the Peak District National Park. Although there are no truly high peaks in the area, there are steep climbs onto Kinder Scout and up the wooded slopes around the reservoirs of the Derwent Valley, and long walks through bleak moorland scattered with tors. Around Castleton the contours are softer, but there are good ridge walks and paths leading to the surrounding caverns. Walks range from 1 to 11 miles (1.5-18kms). Routes include Ladybower, Hayfield to Kinder Scout, Rushup Edge and Stanage Edge. This guide is part of a popular series of A6 pocket walking guides which describe routes which are suitable for walkers of all abilities and to suit all tastes. Route descriptions are accompanied by 2-colour sketch maps. The guides are illustrated with line illustrations, and will provide walkers with a good introduction to what each area covered has to offer.
