A few weeks ago Chris and I escaped to Edale in the the Peak District for the day. I needed some respite from social media, emails and work and a long walk in the Derbyshire countryside was just what I needed.
We travelled by train, connecting at Sheffield train station and stepped onto the platform at Edale 1 and a half hours after we’d left Leeds. We had picked up some food en route via the train stations and needed to venture to the tourist office for a map or guide before we set off on one of the trails.
We’d arrived in Edale a little later than planned so we decided to embark on an 8 mile route that was in a guide-book we bought for a few pounds. Luckily the weather held off whilst we were on our walk and other than some strong winds whilst we were walking across the tops of the mountains.
There is very little signal in the area so I would definitely suggest investing in a route map if you’re going to visit the Peak District for a walking adventure – I wouldn’t want to get lost on some of the routes as you can go for miles without seeing someone else.
Here are a few photos from our walk:
I’m sure we’ll be returning to the Peak District by train in the future so if you have any recommended walks, do let me know in the comments.
