The Peak District is the first National Park established on the British mainland and spans many counties. Predominantly it adorns the northern end of Derbyshire with its seasonal changing landscape of natural beauty of moors and peaks vested with a rich variety of flora and fauna of interest to not only the many ramblers who enjoy the many walks but also amateurs and specialists who revel in the living science of nature, geology, history and sports that inspire adrenalin.
Naturally and man made gouged caves such as Bagshaw, Peak, Speedwell and Treak Cliff Caverns offer visits for those who want to stay securely on two feet instead of adrenalin seeking potholers crawling belly forward through the more challenging of caves that tunnel through the geological tiered sedentary rock.
Peaks such as the Heights of Abraham once only solely mounted on foot now have the cushy option of traveling by cable car. It also has an adventure play area, the views are stunning and span to a panoramic view of changing flora, birds of interest to the avid watcher and frolicking four footed creatures that dip in and out of their natural camouflage. Other peaks such as Mam Tor - The Shivering Mountain are launch pads for the wind bound hang glider enthusiasts. Also not forgetting the peaks that challenge the wealth of grip and balance, concentration and focus, and sheer courage of the rock climber. For those who seek quieter sports they may enjoy the usual sedate sport of fishing in the Lady Bower Reservoir.
