Whether you are wanting to reach your starting point via train or delve into the history of transport in the Peak District, this book has something for you. One thing all the train station walks have in common is that they enjoy a fabulous route into some breath-taking countryside. Gorges, woodland, moors, farmland, rivers, glacial valleys and some tremendous hills are all included in this series of 20 walks, linked together by the transport routes that, today and in the past, dissected the Peak District.

Nearer to home is this collection of 20 circular walks providing the opportunity to explore our local national park. Peak District Walks starting from train stations by Peter Naldrett is based on the four lines providing access to some wonderful walking centres. Ranging from just over 1 to 5.7 miles, these are relatively easy walks. Each includes a note on the station's history, the locality, the route and a helpful sketch map. There are tips for places to get food and drink and old photographs to give you an idea what this area used to be like when more trains crisscrossed through the hills. Explore the countryside, visit long closed stations, walk on disused lines, all providing evocative memories of past industry and the age of steam.
