Derbyshire has great contrasts for the walker to explore from the industrial areas in the south east, the green grass fields from Derby through to Ashbourne before entering the White and Dark Peaks of the Peak District National Park.

Derbyshire is also home to the start of the Pennine Way National Trail. From Edale many a walker has set off on their walking pilgrimage along the spine of England before crossing the border on the Cheviots to Kirk Yetholm in Scotland.
