Top 10 Walks: Peak District: Moors & Tors

£5.99

AVAILABLE

This lovely, pocket size book offers the ten best short circular walks to upland moors and tors across the Peak District.

The uplands of the Peak bear the characteristics of hills rather than mountains: high, undulating plateaux dissected by deep, meandering valleys. Yet there is little uniformity; the seemingly remote moorland of the Kinder plateau is in sharp contrast to the gentler and lower upland heaths found farther south.

These landscapes change subtly with the seasons and, for those who care to look, are rich in wildlife. There are birds, hares, and foxes; and in summer, adders and lizards bask in the sun while butterflies dance in the remotest places.
