A Walkers Paradise

The Peak district National Park offers a spectacular variety of scenery for walking and rambling routes – from limestone dales to dramatic high moorlands.

There are walks to suit individuals, families and groups – whether you want a challenging hike or a short stroll. Whilst Dovestone Reservoir itself is a Popular location providing a circular walk of 2.5miles offering stunning views and giving access to two further reservoirs, Greenfield and Yeoman Hey to the north.

There are a series of more than a dozen Audio Trails provided by www.moorsforthefuture.org.uk simply follow the link to ‘Audio Trails’.

The two closest trails are Marsden Moor and Bleaklow.

Marsden Moor
A trail where you follow in the footsteps of Mesolithic men and women. Imagine yourself 11,000 years back in time and then relate to more recent times, with Blind Jack of Knaresborough building the turnpike roads.

Bleaklow is very much for the adventurous and experienced walker and is an enhanced audio experience (creative writing and actors used). The trail showcases the restoration work of the Moors for the Future partnership.

A little further away you have the Audio Trails for Kinder and Edale.

The adventurous walk that takes in the most famous landmark in the Peak District, with panoramic views from many points on the plateau.

The Audio for the Edale walk includes expert interviews and music. Edale with its remote rural railway station is where the Pennine Way commences and where a substantial Tourist Information Centre is located.
