Ghost Walks in Derbyshire and the Peak District

Babara Wadd

In this book you may meet phantom coaches, headless horsemen, ghostly dogs which haunt crossroads and foretell death, the eerie sounds of a 500-year-old murder, haunted mines, pubs and houses, and even a funeral procession of 12 headless men!

It is a collection of 30 circular walks in Derbyshire and the Peak District, each ranging from two to ten miles in length, including areas such as Matlock, Ashover, Eddlestow, Eyam and Ilam. Each walk has at least one ghostly story attached – some have several chilling tales which will bring a shiver to even the most warmly-clad rambler. The walks cover a wide range of Derbyshire scenery, from gentle meadowlands to the dramatic beauty of limestone country.

There is information about parking, toilets and refreshment stops and good maps. Each walk has an introductory description, telling you the area covered, the type of terrain and highlighting its best attributes. The distance of each walk is given in miles and the walks are graded from A to D (i.e. from Easy to Demanding) making this book extremely ‘walker-friendly’.
