Explore Autumn glory in the Peak District

Have your say

Two ranger-guided walks will showcase the best of the Peak District this month.

A Wincle and Dane Valley Autumnal Odyssey next Saturday will explore the local history of Wincle parish and showcase spectacular moorland views across to the Roaches, Shutlingsloe and Hanging Stone.

The following weekend, on Saturday October 29, there will be an eight mile walk, highlighting the glories of an Agden Autumn, where participants can enjoy magnificent views around Bradfield.

A spokesman for Peak District National Park, who will run the guided walks, said: “With cooler temperatures perfect for walking, cycling, running and climbing, autumn is a great time to explore the UK’s first and original National Park.

“You can also explore on two wheels. Choose from a great range of bikes from cycle hire centres at Parsley Hay, Derwent or Ashbourne and you’re off!

“There are some great places nearby to discover panoramic views and opportunities for stunning photographs, including Stanage - with a great seasonal blaze of colours, dramatic skies, and the sight of migrating birds flocking over the moorland - Langsett - for well-maintained paths through woodland and moorland - Macclesfield Forest - where you can enjoy views of the trees changing coloures reflected in Trentabank reservoir - Manifold Valley - an ‘off the beaten track’ location with family-friendly cycle trails - and Chee Dale - with a spectacular limestone gorge.

“And even if the weather’s bad there is always a warm welcome at the visitor centres in Bakewell, Castleton, Edale and Upper Derwent.”
