Derwent Valley Walks, Denis Eardley - The Derwent Valley is one of this country’s finest assets, both from the point of view of its heritage and magnificent scenery. Although only about 60 miles in length, it fills mighty reservoirs near its source, and has been harnessed to mills and, most importantly played an outstanding part in the Industrial Revolution. This was recognised in 2001, when the Derwent Valley was awarded World Heritage Status, the site running from Masson Mill at Matlock Bath to the former Derby Silk Mill, a distance of approximately 15 miles. It is the only World Heritage Site in the East Midlands. The walks and features are designed to enable visitors to discover this unique and stunningly beautiful valley, both from the valley floor and high up on the surrounding hills and cliff tops. The walks are suitable both for the long-distance walker as well as for those who just want a short walk. As they can be completed in short or long stages, dependent on time and choice. In total there are 20 linear walks, and 10 circular walks. Published December 12.

Walking in Derbyshire, Elaine Burkinshaw - Numerous walking books have been written about the Peak District, home of Britain's first and most visited national park, which covers roughly half of Derbyshire. This guide has a broader scope. It offers comprehensive coverage of whole of the county of Derbyshire, including the Peak District but also the less-visited and contrasting, gentler landscapes south of Ashbourne and Derby. The 60 day walks described in detail here are set against the backdrop of the varied and beautiful Derbyshire landscape and cover an extensive range of historical themes. Routes pass remnants of ancient civilizations, fine market towns and villages, caverns and mines, castles, grand country houses and parklands, Georgian and Victorian spa resorts and industrial heritage sites and the book is full of all the background information walkers need to appreciate the local history. Walks range between 2 and 10 miles long, over a wide variety of terrain, offering something for walkers of all abilities and all this lies in the heart of England, with excellent accessibility from all parts of Britain. Published June 10. K

Ghost Walks in Derbyshire and the Peak District, Barbara Wadd - In this book you may meet phantom coaches, headless horsemen, ghostly dogs which haunt crossroads and foretell death, the eerie sounds of a 500-year-old murder, haunted mines, pubs and houses, and even a funeral procession of 12 headless men! It is a collection of 30 circular walks in Derbyshire and the Peak District, each ranging for two to ten miles in length. Each walk has at least one ghostly story attached – and some have several chilling tales which will bring a shiver to even the most warmly-clad rambler. The walks cover a wide range of Derbyshire scenery, from gentle meadowlands to the dramatic beauty of limestone country. There is information about parking, toilets and refreshment stops and good maps. Barbara Wadd has been walks’ co-ordinator of a local social club for many years.  Published December 12.

The Derbyshire Portway, Pilgrimage to the Past, A Walking Guide, Stephen Bailey - Stephen Bailey's fascinating guide to the Portway - an ancient prehistoric trackway in Derbyshire - has two aims, both of which are successfully achieved. 'The Derbyshire Portway' sets out to be both a pocket guide to this ancient route, substantial parts of which can still be followed on the ground; and to introduce the reader to its history. As a walking guide it is concise and accurate, and augmented by simple-to-follow sketch maps.  In addition, each stretch of the walk is given its own brief chapter identifying points of historical interest, and constantly tempting the walker to stray from the straight and narrow in order to investigate Iron Age hill forts, Mediaeval churches, Roman remains and many other objects of interest calculated to delay one's journey. Published February 08.
