The Inn Way... to the Peak District" by Mark Reid. 84 miles, 6 days, 51 pubs
Revised and updated 2nd Edition of Mark Reid's "The Inn Way... to the Peak District" which charts a 6-day circular walk throughout the Peak District, covering 84 miles and passing 51 great country pubs along the way. This long distance circular walking route takes in the very best of the Peak District from the wilds of Kinder Scout to the dramatic Eastern Edges, gentle pastoral landscape of Chatsworth and the beautiful limestone dales of the White Peak. Starting and finishing at Hayfield, Stage One of this walking route skirts around Kinder Scout then heads through the Woodlands Valley to Hathersage. Stage Two traces the Eastern Edges southwards high above the Derwent Valley to reach Baslow. Stage Three is gentler, with a stroll through Chatsworth Park then across the mystical landscape of Stanton Moor to Youlgrave. Stage Four heads up through the beautiful limestone valleys of the White Peak to Tideswell. Stage Five explores Eyam before heading over to Castleton. Stage Six traverses the famous Great Ridge over to Edale and then follows the packhorse route back to Hayfield.
