Boundary Walk

Brian's PDBW map

The current Peak District National Park boundary is almost identical to the one drawn up and proposed by Ethel and Gerald 80 years ago. We've been working on this exciting boundary walk project for nearly two years and now have a new long distance walk which never strays far from that boundary and celebrates not only the huge diversity of our first national park but also its historical significance.


The walk:

  • Covers 192 miles of stunning scenery

  • Follows existing paths, tracks and quiet lanes

  • Enjoys a wonderful mix of all that our beautiful Peak District has to offer from dramatic crags and open moorland to quiet woodlands and popular trails

  • Explores the Peak District's industrial heritage, breath-taking views and some little known backwaters through rarely trod corners of the Park.

Volunteering opportunities - there are many jobs to be done before the launch on Saturday 17th June 2017 and include:

  • Writing to businesses (retail and hospitality mainly), Parish Councils, walking groups, etc, telling them about the walk, inviting them to support it

  • Helping with the launch including: co-ordinating groups of walkers to first-foot the route from each of the start points

  • Interviewing the walk volunteers to get snippets for the press, about their experience of the walk

  • Proof-reading the book, and checking the final proof on the ground

  • Helping with waymarking the route

  • Writing funding bids to help fund the costs of waymarking

  • It would also be great if you could help develop the website
