Map sheet number OL1 in the OS Explorer series is ideal for exploring all that the Dark Peak area of the Peak District has to offer. Visitors to this area will enjoy high gritstone hills, steep-sided valleys and moorland plateau. Highlights of the area include: Kinder Scout, The Pennine Way, Edale, Derwent Valley Heritage Way, Ladybower Reservoir, Black Hill, and Glossop.
With the peaks of Blackhill, Bleaklow and Kinder Scout all covered on this map, walkers and climbers are spoilt for choice. Spot populations of pretty birdlife in the Dark Peaks’ patchwork of perfect habitats or explore peat bogs, limestone crags, heather-clad moorland and brooding gritstone tors. Also, don’t miss the chance to see the site of the Kinder Scout Mass Tresspass of 1932 – a pivotal point in the fight for better access to the countryside.
One key route is the Derwent Valley Heritage Way. At 55 miles long, you can opt to tackle just a short section, or go for a multi-day trek, including a stop off at the must-see Derwent Valley Mills World Heritage Site.
Whatever outdoor pursuits you’re planning, from cycling and sightseeing, to riding and rambling, you’ll find something to cater for every outdoor interest on the OS Explorer OL1 map of the Peak District.
