No, after you…

No, after you!

DURING the last few months I have been fortunate enough to enjoy walking in three beautiful areas of the English countryside.

Firstly there was the breathtaking Northern Cornish coastal paths around Perranporth, then the rugged Peak District in Derbyshire and most recently the spectacular South Sussex Downs.  All three enabled me to enjoy the pleasure of being in fresh air, encountering walks of between five and seven miles through terrain of varying toughness.

You can learn and enjoy so much with a walk in the park. No, not your local park but the Peak District National Park.

The Peak District was Britain’s first national park, established in 1951 and can be found mainly in the county of Derbyshire and also parts of Cheshire, Greater Manchester, Staffordshire and Yorkshire.

It covers 1,438 square kilometres – but enough of the facts and figures, what’s the place actually like?
