A Boot Up The Western Peak

  • Description
  • Related

This handy, hardback pocket guide to the western margins of the Peak District National Park makes a great companion for anyone intending to explore the area on foot. The ten routes described range in length from a modest 2 miles (3.25 kms) to 10 miles (16 kms).

Plenty of captioned colour photographs by the author give a flavour of each route and panels give additional interesting detail about geographical features and historical associations.

The routes cover a broad canvas and are ideal for families and groups of friends, from high moorlands overlooking Greater Manchester in the north-west to the expansive parkland of Lyme Hall; the recesses of the Goyt Valley and sharp crest of Kerridge Hill; the magnificent viewpoints of Shutlingsloe and the Roaches; the secret corners of the Dane Valley and the southernmost tip of the National Park.

Halsgrove’s small-format guidebook, will ensure a great walking experience and is an ideal reminder of a visit to the Peak District.

Ten walks included are:

Over Coombes Edge to Cown Edge Way • Hayfield and Lantern Pike • Around Lyme Park • In Goyt Valley • Kerridge Hill and the Macclesfield Canal • Over Shutlingsloe to Macclesfield Forest • Wincle and Danebridge • Exploring the Dane Valley • High on the Roaches • To the Southern Tip of the Peak National Park

The celebrated mountaineer and photojournalist Roger Redfern is author of forty books and his articles have appeared in publications that range from Country Life, The Lady and Woman's World to TGO, High and the Dalesman. He has written a regular piece for the Guardian's Country Diary for almost thirty years. He has travelled widely – from Belarus and Ukraine to Cuba, Brazil and Argentina; from central Africa to the European Alps which he knows intimately. He lives in the heart of the Peak District.

Peak District Address BookPeak District Address Book - £12.99
You will find some pictures in this magnificent Address Book with azure skies and bright sunshine, but the photographer, the masterly Jerry Rawson, prefers the impact of dramatic light, stormy conditions and especially around dawn and dusk when the light can be a revelation transforming the mundane landscape into something quite sublime; capturing a fleeting moment of perfection
Moods of the Bronte MoorsMoods of the Bronte Moors - £12.95
It’s the combination of upland country, well-wooded valleys and characterful mill towns that makes the South Pennines such a fascinating area to explore and photograph, and John Morrison’s stunning new book explores every aspect of this vastly under-rated landscape.

This lavishly illustrated book by Bill Bevan is a must for those wishing to follow in the footsteps of ancient ancestors. Directions are given to the most impressive and accessible sites for each period and an invaluable timeline runs through the book to relate the Peak District sites to internationally important places such as Stonehenge, the Pyramids and Sutton Hoo.

But John Morrison’s evocative photographs are the next best thing, showing the Pennine hills and valleys throughout the seasons.
