The Peak District marks the meeting of the soft southern landscape, with its light-coloured limestone, and theharsh grey gritstone lands to the north. The park lies close to the industrial sprawl of Manchester and Sheffield, and for thisreason it can be crowded at times.
Yet for all its proximity to civilisation, the Peak District carries about it an air of timeless peace and tranquility, with mileafter mile of drystone walling sectioning the countryside into the familiar British chequerboard pattern.
The River Dove splits the park near Tissington, famed for its ancient well-dressing celebrations. Better known perhaps, is theRiver Wye, which flows across the park, creating lovely views and good walking, particularly on the moors near Chee Dale, andMiller's Dale. Near Bakewell is Haddon Hall, one of Britain's most famous country houses.
