Review:

Publisher's website 2018

This lovely pocket size book explores ten of the Peak Districtís most fascinating historic landscapes ó from prehistoric monuments to Industrial Revolution ruins.

Stone tools from Thorís Cave indicate that man arrived in the Peak as the glaciers receded. More obvious are Bronze and Iron Age circles, burials and earthworks, as well as the scars of mineral extraction ó begun by the Romans and continuing today.

Some Peakland churches claim Saxon foundation, and by the Middle Ages there was an extensive network of tracks and settlements. Water powered the first industrial revolution, bringing roads, canals and railways, and in the fine country mansions, farmsteads, cottages and town houses there is a rich variety of vernacular and classic architecture.
