OS Explorer OL1

The 1:25,000 OS Explorer map of The Peak District is a must-have when visiting the Dark Peak Area.

Harvey Superwalker XT25 | BMC Dark Peak

Also Great maps for anyone wanting to complete this route. The Superwalker XT25 maps are 1:25,000 and the BMC is 1:40,000. The BMC is ideal if you are more familiar with the area or are more confident working with reduced information, if sticking to the route it should be more than adequate.

The South Yorkshire Moors

A great book for anyone wanting to explore, or know more about, the Dark Peak. All Chris Goddard's books are beautiful, rich, and interesting reads and I found this volume in particular a superb reference when planning the route. The local knowledge really brings a light to the Dark Peak!
