Walk the Limestone Way
Discover the best of the beautiful 'White Peak' on a superb 46-mile walk across the heart of the Peak District National Park. 'The Limestone Way', named after the rock which was formed 300 million years ago, is a waymarked long distance route with spectacular scenery and views from its start at Castleton in the Hope Valley to its end at Rocester in Staffordshire. It passes through dramatic dales, a green rolling landscape and several picturesque villages - offering a choice of places to stop for refreshments and stay overnight along the way.
A complete route guide with description, maps and photos is available from Derbyshire Dales District Council for just £3.50 (inc p&p).
