I invested in my first pair of walking boots in spring 2016.
Having lived on the fringe of the Peak District for most of my life I finally got round to checking it out on foot at the end of 2015. And boy did I get a surprise!
My only viewpoint of the stunningly beautiful Peak District had been from a car seat. Yes, I have driven through a lot of my local countryside. But I don’t think you get to have a real insight in to the true beauty of the landscape until you start climbing those hill, edges and peaks, depending on your level of mobility of course.
One restriction I did have and still have to this day is my inability to climb very fast because I’m an asthma sufferer which impairs me slightly. But I settle for taking steady bites at it and, well I’ve even climbed to the top of Mam Tor!
And let’s not forget my age. Being a lady in her early 50’s has also slowed me down. Although for some age is not a restriction. I was passed by a couple of ladies who were in their 70s almost jogging up the side of Mam Tor.
Having climbed those hills and crossed those valleys I have now decided to give you an insight to all that is wonderful about the Peak District from my perspective. So we can explore together. 🙂
I’ll be sharing walks, news, cookery, events and anything which will Peak Your Interest and look forward to hearing your views and sharing your news.
