Walking in the Peak District: Day two

Walking

Part two of a two-day walk in the High Peak, tried and tested by environment and travel journalist, Mark Rowe.

Be rewarded with dramatic views of the Peak District

Starting in Castleton, you'll pass through Winnat’s Head farm, climb Mam Tor and finish at Hope station. We're assuming you're comfortable with map reading and grid references, can use a compass and probably prefer in any case to put together your own walk, ad lib a bit, following a path or feature that looks worth nosing around, rather than stick rigidly to a route.
