The County of Derbyshire
If you like walking then the Peak District is the place to go. It is covered in footpaths and the scenery is varied and wonderful. Even if you don't like walking there is so much to see it is sometimes a little overwhelming but you will never run out of things to do.
Dovedale, near Ashbourne, was made famous by Izaak Walton and Charles Cotton who wrote 'The Compleat Angler'.
The high ground above Buxton is in the Dark or High Peak; the highest part of which is Kinder Scout. The Pennine Way footpath starts in this region at Edale.
