High Peak Walks

The central area of High Peak has so much to explore from award-winning parks to canal basins and dramatic river-side walks, historic market places and industrial mill heritage all capped by stunning views of the Peak District landscape.

To encourage people to visit and explore these places on foot, three walking leaflets have been developed.

Each leaflet includes routes and points of interest along them in Chapel-en-le-Frith, New Mills and Whaley Bridge and is supported by interpretation panels at key locations in each town.
