The Edges of Peak District

Gardoms Edge Peak District

Few recent trips to the edges of Peak District National Park

Peak District is truly an amazing place. Honestly everytime I’m going, I always discover something new. There are many places, but edges of the Peak District never stopped to amaze me.

Peak District is quite famous for its edges. I have no idea how many in total are there.From the top of my head, I can name just a few: Stanage, Curbar, Bamford, Froggatt, Derwent, Burbage, Gardoms….  I’m sure there is more,  a lot more, but you get the picture.

During last weeks I visited few of the edges of Peak District. 

Bamford Edge is famous for the view. And truly the view is stunning.There are splendid views across the Peak District Hope Valley and down to the lovely Ladybower Reservoir below. This spot is ideal sunset location.

Gardoms Edge. This one has been hidden from me. I did not even know it existed. Apparently, this edge was inhabited and arably farmed during the Bronze Age. Somewhere there is a prehistorical stone called Cup and Ring stone and this is something I have to find yet. This edge is a quiet place with nice birch trees on the top. If you have never been there, give it a try. You will not be disappointed.
