The Dark Peak

The Dark Peak’s impressive landscape of vast plateaus and long, rocky ridges and edges with few man-made structures make it superb for serious trekking and catching sight of wildlife. No wonder it’s considered the ‘dramatic’ part of the Peak District, with its deep valleys, isolated farms and boundaries marked by gritstone walls. The wild landscape of the Dark Peak with its heater-clad moors is also home to Kinder Scout, the highest point in the Peak District where the Mass Trespass of 1932 took place. The Dark Peak’s beauty can be found in the fast flowing streams from the plateau edges and the sheltered valleys or cloughs; the landscape unchanged for centuries.
