616 Cressbrook Dale to Great Hucklow

With valleys full of cowslips and early-purple orchids, and woods garlic-scented by ramsons, spring sees the White Peak at its very best. Cressbrook Dale's old lead rakes become colourful rockeries, while the fields are full of playful lambs and, as a bonus, each picturesque village has its own pub.
