MOORLAND CANINE AND THE DERBYSHIRE PEAK DISTRICT
In 1951, The Derbyshire Peak District was the first area to be designated as a National Park, it is now divided into sections known as the Dark Peak, the White Peak, the Staffordshire Moorlands and the Derbyshire Dales.
The Hope Valley, situated within the Peak District National Park lies in the heart of the Derbyshire countryside. A large wide valley running east to west along the boundary between the rugged and inspirational landscape of the gritstone moors and edges of the Dark Peak and the limestone outcrops and deep cut dales of the White Peak.
Well known as wonderful dog walking and climbing country, it’s also a haven for many other outdoor pursuits; biking, running, orienteering, horse riding, gliding and paragliding, rock climbing, caving and potholing as well as for the quieter inspirational activities of artists, writers, anglers and birdwatchers.
If you’re looking for somewhere new for you and you canines to visit, come and see what the Peak District has to offer – we have some amazing walks for you and your best friends, not to mention our pubs and tea rooms.
The village of Eyam sits in relative isolation deep in the heart of the Peak District surrounded by a rugged landscape of limestone hills and dales and sheltered from the north by the dominating prominence of Eyam Edge, is perhaps the most well documented and most visited of all Derbyshire's villages.
Known famously as the ‘Plague Village' Eyam imposed isolation on itself when the plague broke out in August of 1665, rather than let the infection spread to neighbouring areas. Thousands of visitors flock here every year from all over the world, fascinated by the village’s valiant story of sacrifice.
