After over 20 years a new definiative guide for moorland grit has arrived covering Kinder, Chew valley, Beaklow and marsden area.

With such a long wait was it worth it? Yes the guide is fantastic. Well presented, the photos are brilliant and inspire you to visit some of the more remote areas of the peak.
