2) If you’re walking from home, catch the train at the start of your walk and walk back from your destination, rather than starting with the walk and feeling pressure to catch the train at the end. For example, if you want to walk between Buxton and Dove Holes, catch the train to Dove Holes and walk back to Buxton from there. Then there’s no worries about missing the train, you can just relax and enjoy the scenery.
4) Spot wildlife – the Peak District is home to wonderful wildlife. Listening to birdsong, getting a whiff of wildflowers and feeling the elements on our face can lift our spirits, and there’s lots of research
to prove it.
5) Join a walking group or find a walking buddy. According to active travel charity Living Streets
, over a third of people in the UK would walk more if they had someone to walk with. There are several walking groups in the High Peak, Hope Valley, Sheffield and Manchester areas you could try, including TransPeak Walks
, who always walk from train stations on the High Peak and Hope Valley lines.
