TEA TALES AND REAL ALES

My name is Tony Colligan and I am an alcafrollick ! …and my wife, Julie… just likes a good frollick!

so if you want to appreciate the beautiful Derbyshire countryside and enjoy exercise in the fresh air but also balance it out with some real ale then these Peak District walks are for you !

500 miles and 100 walks across the wonderful High Peak countryside visiting over 100 different pubs, Inns and Hotels along the way. Peak district public houses are in decline, support your local pubs...
and some not so local !

These circular walks are generally around 7 miles long and more often including at least one pub along the way. Check the distances but generally the first pub will be about two miles from the starting point so I would advise starting at 11am ish to get there for opening time.
You don't want to be hanging around for the pub to open!

Click on the red routes on the map or scroll down for a list of walks in the Peak district.
