PEAK HAP­PI­NESS

The wild land­scape of the Peak Dis­trict keeps draw­ing me back. Last year on a blus­tery day, I walked to the top of Mam Tor on a Great Day Out (De­cem­ber 2016, is­sue 119). As the rain started to lash down, I couldn’t have felt hap­pier as I looked down the val­ley to­wards Castle­ton. I par­tic­u­larly love vis­it­ing in the late au­tumn and win­ter months when the High Peak moors take on a dra­matic bleak beauty and the trails are bliss­fully quiet. At this time of year, the choco­late-shop pretty vil­lages are full of twin­kling lights and cosy pubs with roar­ing fires. A per­fect end to a day on the hills.
