Walks in Derbyshire

Derbyshire is famous for being the home of the majority of the Peak District, with the rolling dales of the White Peak covering the middle band of the county and the bleaker moorland of the Dark Peak covers the northern section.

However outside the Peak District there are still some pleasant walks to be had, and some of these are listed on the page below. The River Dove forms the border between Derbyshire and the neighbouring county of Staffordshire, whilst the River Derwent rises on the bleak moorland to the north of the county, before running south through to Derby an on towards the Trent.



Below is a map showing all the walks that I have completed in Derbyshire.
