Peak District Weekend Trip

1st to 3rd November (end 3rd week)

Join Richard Campbell and James Welch as they explore the interesting heather-clad moorland and pre-historic burial mounds of Britain's oldest National Park, the Peak District. Interestingly, its name derives from the old English word 'peac', meaning knoll or hill, as there is no single summit. Enjoying the comfort of Bretton Youth Hostel, the group will track some of the Pennine Way's 267 miles and take in such natural features as the high peat-covered plateau of Kinder Scout.
