This is an area noted for its beautiful dales and limestone uplands which give endless scope for exploring on foot, by bicycle or car. Monksdale is a national nature reserve particularly noted for its wildflowers and rugged scenery.

Millers Dale offers delightful walks along the River Wye or on the bed of the former Midland Railway track where a good deal of industrial archaeology lends particular interest to your exploration.

Further afield, you will find the stunning Lathkill Dale and the Castleton area noted for its caves with stalactite formations and a Norman castle.
