This Wainwright-sized guide to the walking opportunities on the Northern and Western moors of the Peak District focuses on land opened up to walkers by the recent Right to Roam legislation. It is part of a series of Freedom to Roam guides published in partnership with Ramblers' Association, long-time campaigner for greater public access to the countryside.
The guide includes: an introduction to the area: its landscape, history and natural history; 12 free-range walks, graded for difficulty, that allow walkers to choose their own route; a full-page 4-colour OS map for each walk; special features on points of interest chosen to add to walkers' enjoyment of the countryside; practical information for visitors; a guide to public rights of access.
... these are books about roaming, rather than about following the beaten track. And all the better for it - York Evening Press
... these guides are what many walkers want - compact books, well-presented, containing splendid photographs and opening up little corners of Yorkshire - Yorkshire Post
... enough to encourage even the most trail-blinkered rambler off piste to enjoy their new rights - Lancashire Evening Post
