Book of the month: Day Walks in the Peak District

Thursday, 1 March 2018

To coincide with the publication of Ed Douglas and John Beatty's beautifully written and illustrated new book, Kinder Scout: The people’s mountain, this month we’re offering a free route download of ‘Kinder Scout – South-east circuit’, as featured in Day Walks in the Peak District: 20 New circular routes by veteran hillwalkers Norman Taylor and Barry Pope. 

With walks in the beautiful limestone dales and valleys of the Peak District, the book covers three areas: The High Moors, including the Kinder plateau and Bleaklow; Hills, Tors and Edges, including walks around the Eastern Edges such as Stanage and Burbage; and Limestone Country.

The route up Kinder Scout begins at Ollerbrook Booth and continues up Kinder’s south-eastern slopes, making a gradual ascent up to Crookstone Knoll – ‘A splendid viewpoint from which to take in the majestic surroundings’.

Click below to download the route.

This month only, with every copy of Day Walks in the Peak District, bought through our website, we’ll throw in a copy of Walking the Literary Landscape by Ian Hamilton. Happy rambling!
