Synopsis

This book describes 25 circular walks which reflect the splendid diversity of the Derbyshire countryside. There are routes across heather-covered moors in the north and rich, rolling agricultural land in the south. At other times Bill Parke leads us beside sparkling rivers and through picturesque stone villages. In all cases he has taken care to ensure that the different needs of individual family members are considered. All of the routes are less than 6 miles long, with 'Escape Routes' which allow the very young or less energetic to shorten the walk. There are comprehensive instructions and an absorbing commentary which should occupy the most enquiring young mind. Many routes include a highlight which will be of particular interest to children - among others, there's a racing car collection, an otter and owl sanctuary, the National Tramway Museum, theme parks and working mills, farms and mines.
