Welcome to PeakRoutes.com.

Thanks for making your way to Peak Routes whether it was via google, twitter, Facebook or pure luck. This is a website designed and maintained by me, Dean of DeanRead.net. I plan to bring you as much information about my adventures in the Peak District as possible.

Where Peak Routes came from.

I was walking one day in the Peak District in early 2012 near a spot called Madwomen’s Stones, it’s located up on the north-eastern corner of Kinder Scout and is a lovely spot. I was sat there with my friend Andy having lunch and it suddenly dawned on me… As I surveyed the view in a 360 degree radius I realised that I had walked up every hill, along every edge and through every valley that I could see from that spot. I thought it was high time that I grouped all the posts and information together in one place. That place was to be PeakRoutes.com and so the site was born.

What are my aims?.

My aim with PeakRoutes.com is to get out as much as possible and bring back lots of pictures, videos and audio for you all to enjoy. The whole angle of the site is basically to report on where I go, what I see, what I do and how it made me feel. So this site is to be an account of my adventures in the Peak District, with the odd post about walking in other areas of the UK thrown in too. I am just a regular guy, with a regular job who loves getting out there and exploring. I like to stray off the beaten path, I like to tread areas that are a little more off the radar. I would like to say this now, I am by no means an expert so you won’t find any preaching here…. Put simply… I love the Peak District and I want to spread the word as much as possible through my adventures.

Thanks Dean Read

One comment on “About

  1. Hi there, this is a wonderful site but how do you square your trips with the fact that it is prohibited to wild camp in the Peak District unless you have permission from a land owner? I’d love to try wild camping there but am a bit of afraid of the consequences…
