To celebrate Britain's first and arguably most beautiful national park, supporters of Friends of the Peak District have devised a 190-mile walking route around its entire boundary – the Peak District Boundary Walk.
Stretching from the moorland tops of the South Pennines to the gentle limestone scenery of the Derbyshire Dales, the route embraces the urban edges of Sheffield and Oldham, as well as Staffordshire's rugged moorland and the undulating slopes of Cheshire.
Follow the route along existing footpaths, tracks, quiet lanes, former railway lines and a canal towpath. Enjoy some quiet and little-known corners of the national park. Walk it in day stages or tackle it all in one go.
Peak District Boundary Walk includes a detailed route description, Ordnance Survey 1:25,000-scale maps and information about places of interest and local facilities.
Separate features examine some of the key national park issues and how the Friends of the Peak District have campaigned for over 90 years to safeguard our most precious landscapes.
