This guide explores the southern dales of the White Peak area of the Peak District National Park in Staffordshire and Derbyshire. 30 walks are included in this guide, between 3 and 9 miles long. From the grounds of Ilam Hall, down through the old railway trackbed of Manifold Trail and such sights as Thor's Cave along the route, the southern section of the White Peak offers variety and beauty and is waiting to be explored.

The White Peak is the name given to the rocky southern area of the Peak District, for its pale underlying limestone. The result is a landscape of escarpments, heather moorlands, wooded valleys and the roll of hillsides and plateaux. Idyllic villages dot the walks with pubs standing by for refreshing walkers after a good White Peak walk.

This guide covers the southern section of the White Peak, divided from the northern by the High Peak Trail between Buxton and the Cromford Canal near Matlock. The guide not only provides clear route descriptions for all 30 walks, but practical information on transport to and around the area, history of the region and information on the Peak District National Park. The guide helps change a simple walk into a memorable one, with insights into the places and sights of interest along the way.

Each walk is illustrated with OS maps to guide the way.
Walks can be shortened, or added together to create longer itineraries according to the desires of the walker
Beautiful colour photography is throughout the guide.
The companion guide to this book is the White Peak Walks: The Northern Dales.
