Bradt's Slow Travel Peak District brings a new perspective to this much-loved area. Slow down and let expert local author Helen Moat guide you to not just all the well-known places, but away from the crowds to uncover the hidden corners of the Peak District. The author's love of interesting and colourful story is linked to the natural and manmade features of the area, highlighting the quirky and unusual, places and points of interest off the beaten tourist track, from dales to abandoned mills, historical ruins, strange follies and irresistible pubs. Connect with the people who work and live in the national park through first-hand accounts of their experiences, and discover great places to cook, eat and drink, with an emphasis on tasty, local and good quality food in atmospheric venues and locations. An emphasis on car-free travel throws up a range of options: walking, cycling, boating, buses and trains - and some more unusual modes of transport as part of the sightseeing experience. Helen Moat has won, or been placed, in numerous travel writing competitions and has a passion for, and extensive knowledge of, the Peak District.

She is constantly inspired by the local landscape...
