MY WALKING WORLD David Preston

Peak District Boundary Walk

  

Last updated 19/10/2017

To celebrate Britain’s first and arguably most beautiful national park, The Friends of the Peak District have devised a brand new long distance (190-mile) walking route around its entire boundary. The walk is divided up into 20 stages which are easily completed in a normal day

Stretching from the moorland tops of the South Pennines to the gentle limestone scenery of the Derbyshire Dales, the route embraces the urban edges of Sheffield and Oldham, as well as Staffordshire's rugged moorland and the undulating slopes of Cheshire.

After I purchased the Guidebook I decided to walk the whole route and details on my progress can be found below, some of the mileages may differ as occasionally I have deviated from the published route for refreshments or to connect up with public transport or accommodation
