Walking in the Peak District - White Peak East

When it comes to walking, the Dark Peak and its gritstone edges tend to receive most attention; but those in search of something a little different, and no less stunning, should look to the White Peak. This new guidebook captures the gentler charm of the area, says Rob Greenwood.
