PEAK DISTRICT (The)

PEAK DISTRICT (The)

Britain's first ever National Park includes high peaks and moorlands, and also classic limestone landscapes in the centre of England, south of the major conurbations of Manchester and South Yorkshire, and north of a line between Derby and Stoke. It covers an area of 555 square miles and is popular with ramblers, cavers, climbers, cyclists and weekend motorists. Man has left his mark on the area since Neolithic times and the area includes attractive towns, such as Ashbourne, villages and heritage sites.  The Peak District is mainly, though not exclusively, in Derbyshire.
