£1 from every sale goes to the Edale Mountain Rescue TeamI recently conquered the Yorkshire three peak challenge in just under 11 hours. I took the challenge on firstly because it's there and secondly to find out if it was a challenge my young niece Bethan and daughter Anaïs and her friends could undertake.It was an excellent full day's hike which is one of those that once started there's no real opportunity to cut it short (unless you get a taxi like some of the hikers did). So it's probably a little much for an eight year old and a thirteen year old.So not to stifle youngsters who are looking for a challenge I got to thinking. Is there anywhere I could organise a 3 or 4 peak challenge for both adults and youngsters to have a go at. Then I thought if the challenge was in a figure of 8, hikers could choose a full day's walk or split it in two with a fun overnight camp out. So this is what I came up with. I think it's perfect with everything a recreational hiker could possibly need, whatever their age. There is a choice of camp sites, plenty of parking, a small shop for supplies, a couple of pubs, a hotel, a small train station, stunning scenery and the all-important public toilets.

Danny Holdsworth was devastated when his best friend Nigel Slater was murdered thirty years ago when they were both about to head off to university. Even though the police tried to implicate Danny himself at the time they had no evidence and since then they've found no other suspect. Now an esteemed television journalist Danny decides to take a year off and go back to his hometown of Matlock in the Derbyshire peak district and take over as editor of the local evening newspaper which he intends to use to campaign to finally bring Nigel's killer to justice.But along the way he hadn't counted on some passionate yet arguably forbidden events in his love life and he certainly hadn't expected the arrival of his estranged mother who's been living in America since Danny was a child. He hasn't seen her since then but she brings news of Nigel's killer that will truly make Danny wish he'd never been born.

The study on which this work is based was undertaken between 1991 and 1995 and depicts the state of transport policy and practice in Europe, Britain and the Netherlands during this period. The text examines how the concept of sustainability has been interpreted in transport and environmental policy at the European, national and local level. The approaches of Britain and the Netherlands to transport and environmental policy are compared. With the use of case studies of transport corridors it illustrates how different policy aproaches affect choices and decisions taken at the project level. It demonstrates the advantages of a strategic planning approach which is objective-led and which sets out speciifc targets for sustainability. The book concludes by outlining an environment-based approach for transport planning.

Shortlisted: 2016 Boardman Tasker Prize for Mountain Literature ‘[Wild Country] chronicles not just the mountains [Mark] has climbed, but the part he played in bringing to market a little piece of sporting equipment that revolutionised mountaineering and saved countless lives.’ – Sarah Freeman, Yorkshire Post In early 1978, an extraordinary new invention for rock climbers was featured on the BBC television science show Tomorrow’s World. It was called the ‘Friend’, and it not only made the sport safer, it helped push the limits of the possible. The company that made them was called Wild Country, the brainchild of Mark Vallance. Within six months, Vallance was selling Friends in sixteen countries. Wild Country would go on to develop much of the gear that transformed climbing in the 1980s. Mark Vallance’s influence on the outdoor world extends far beyond the company he founded. He owned and opened the influential retailer Outside in the Peak District and was part of the team that built The Foundry, Sheffield’s premier climbing wall – the first modern climbing gym in Britain. He worked for the Peak District National Park and served on its board. He even found time to climb 8,000-metre peaks and the Nose on El Capitan. Diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease in his mid fifties and robbed of his plans for retirement, Vallance found a new sense of purpose as a reforming president of the British Mountaineering Council. In Wild Country, Vallance traces his story, from childhood influences like Robin Hodgkin and Sir Jack Longland, to two years in Antarctica, where he was base commander of the UK’s largest and most southerly scientific station at Halley Bay, before his fateful meeting with Ray Jardine, the man who invented Friends, in Yosemite. Trenchant, provocative and challenging, Wild Country is a remarkable personal story and a fresh perspective on the role of the outdoors in British life and the development of climbing in its most revolutionary phase.

The Peak District was an area viewed with fear and foreboding for a thousand years. Largely impenetrable to the traveller, it was called a 'howling wilderness' by Defoe. Its few inhabitants were uncouth and the last troglodytes in England. Their guttural dialect was barely intelligible and their fondness for drink was renowned and repellent. Since Saxon times the Peak was associated with evil and the abode of the devil was located in the huge cave known as Peak's Arse. By the Norman period this supernatural cavern was proclaimed one of the seven wonders of Europe. Elizabethan topographers declared it the first of the Seven Wonders of the Peak - all of which were natural phenomena except for Chatsworth, built amid what Charles Cotton called ' the warts and pudenda of Nature'. A magical transformation occurred, almost overnight, when the romantic period viewed the Peak in quite a different light. Its wonder was now its landscape - portrayed by artists and writers as picturesque, beautiful and sublime. Rousseau, the 'prophet of Nature' came to live there. Dovedale became Elysium and Monsal Dale Arcadia. Turnpike roads slowly opened up the Peak. Chatsworth was its showplace while Buxton strove to emulate Bath. Scientists such as Erasmus Darwin came to study its geology and industrialists such as Wedgwood and Boulton its minerals. Arkwright's cotton mills made it one of the 'cradles of the Industrial Revolution' and antiquaries and archaeologists explored its ancient remains. Ruskin foresaw the ruin of an idyllic world and raved against the coming of the railways and the curse of trippers. Yet, despite the inevitable scars, the area retained much of its natural beauty and, surrounded by burgeoning urban industrial growth, it became a focal point for the outdoor movement of the 19th and 20th centuries. Not surprisingly, by 1953 much of the Peak District was designated Britain's first National Park. What is surprising is that this important new book is the first full and
