The Peak District is the oldest and one of the largest of the National Park. Established in 1951 the Peak District National Park lies mainly in the county of Derbyshire and is surrounded by the conurbations of Sheffield, Derby, Manchester and Chesterfield. The Peak District is accessible to over 22 million visitors every year making it the second popular National Park in the world.

The Peak District made up of the White Peak and Dark Peak is a mecca for walkers, ramblers, hikers, climbers and mountain bikers. The White Peak, also known as the Derbyshire Dales, is formed from limestone creating a soft landscape of green pastures, white limestone walls, and beautiful villages like Youlgreave, Monyash, Tideswell and Great Longstone. The towns of Bakewell, Ashbourne, Buxton exist as major tourist centers in the White Peak area and form a good base to explore the Dales. Wapenmap reflects the unique character of the White Peak with a map showing the Monsal Trail winding through some beautiful dales in the Peak District National Park, Lathkill Dale a series of secluded White Peak dales and the Goyt Valley offering a walk for all the family.

The Dark Peak area of the Peak District National Park is a land of valleys, mountain tops and rugged moorland wilderness.  Characterised by the gritstone rocks on which the Dark Peak is formed, for many decades it has been at the center of walking and climbing in the Peak District.  The towns of Hathersage and Castleton act as centers for walkers, climbers and tourists alike.  There is a wealth of history contained within the valleys of the Peak District these being reflected in the Wapenmap.  The Burbage Edge Wapenmap has a walk around the Iron Age fort at Carl Wark, whilst Howden & Derwent take you around the lost villages of the Ashopton and Derwent in the Derwent valley.  Mam Tor & Lose Hill takes you ona spectacular ridge walk in the Peak District National Park, starting at Lose Hill in the Derwent valley you end on Mam Tor and the gateway to the White Peak.  Damflask, Agden & Strines show the most northern part of the Peak District National Park, a quiet place for walking, where few people.
