National Park Rangers are welcoming walkers to their new programme of guided walks.
The popular Peak District walks are back and available to book online now, with walks throughout the year from January to December.
Engagement ranger Paul Wetton said: “We are delighted to offer our guided walks again and we’re looking forward to helping visitors explore the Peak District’s hills and dales once more.
“Lockdowns and Covid-19 restrictions in 2020 and 2021 stopped the walks programme in its tracks, but now our walk leaders are ready and raring to go with a fresh list of walks to refresh mind, body and soul.
“With a New Year and a new set of walks, it’s a great time for people who are new to walking or new to visiting the National Park to come along and give it a try.”
There is a wide variety of walks covering a range of themes from archaeology to map reading and navigation skills to wildlife. Some walks are at weekends, some on weekdays.
All the walks are led by experienced, knowledgeable National Park Rangers. Highlights of the walks programme in coming weeks include:
Sunday 13th February: A Wander from White Lodge – discover dramatic Deep Dale, distant views and ancient settlements along the way.
Sunday 13th March: Explore Longstone Moor – follow a fascinating route back in time in the Great Longstone area to see Bronze Age monuments and evidence of lead mining.
Wednesday 13th April: Hidden Past of the Upper Derwent – explore off the beaten track to find lost farms, old stories and hidden paths among deep cloughs and dark forests.
