Peak District National Park

Much of our exploration of the National Park has been done by bike, but for all those keen walkers out there, there are plenty of walks available. The obvious one is the Pennine Way, but there are countless others to choose from.

If you want something a little less energetic, why not enjoy the scenery from you car! Paul, in particular, enjoys sight seeing from the comfort of the car!

Dovedale

This is an extremely popular beauty spot and we never miss our walk here! On a warm, sunny day the scenery can be a little spoiled by the crowds of people who flock there especially if you want to take photos with nobody in them! but the crowds would still never stop us from going. The path follows the course of the river and the scenery really is very beautiful.

 

The last two occasions we visited the river had completely burst its banks and this added a whole new dimension to our walk. We were very glad we all had wellies on!

 

When you start the walk, you can choose to either follow a wide tarmac path or cross a wooden bridge and follow an unmade path by the side of river. If you choose to follow the tarmac path you will soon come to a point where you have to cross the river via stepping stones. In the Autumn/Winter the stones can be unpassable if the river is high see photos below!

                   

These people decided to try and cross but thought better of it!
