The Limestone Way in the Peaks District, between Birmingham and Manchester, is worthwhile for two reasons. First reason: the area is rich in historic monuments, ranging from the Iron Age, through the Roman period, until the industrial revolution when mining was common. The second reason for choosing this path is the beautiful landscape of rich open meadows, distant vistas and small villages. Here, between two cities with more than a million inhabitants, peace reigns.

  • Positive Very enjoyable short trail. Great scenery and passes through some of the most iconic places in the Peak District
  • Negative Staffordshire section way marking is essentially non existent. Booby trapped stiles over stone walls with the sprung gate at the top - lethal!
