Peakland Pubs
Peakland Pubs
  • Description

One of the undoubted joys of a walk in the Peak District is the tempting prospect of a pint and a pie at one of the areas unrivalled range of village pubs. Andrew McCloy, author of the authoritative Peak District Pub Guide (2002), now takes a closer look at some of the stories, myths and legends behind Peak District pubs.

Early ale houses and taverns helped slake the thirst of the lead miners, farmhands and packhorse men, and then later on the town pubs and hotels began to cater for the growing tourist trade. Their names alone reflect the social make-up of the area from leading local families and various monarchs through to Peak District professions and a traditional rural way of life.

Throughout the book, Andrew McCloy relates to a wide selection of individual pubs recounting local tales, strange stories, ghostly sightings, memorable landlords or customers. The book is illustrated by his own photographs. ISBN 1841144509, paperback, 147x210mm, 96 pages.
