Peak District

The Peak District is a large area of public land with some wonderful, if spartan, landscape. Many of the roads through this area are very isolated and can be tricky to drive. There are also sporadic train and bus services though car is the best way to reach most secluded areas.

Chesterfield

The Leaning Spire

Well known for the leaning spire church (caused by the weight of the roofing material), Chesterfield is a cosmopolitan town with a lot of shopping and restaurants. The fact that the core area is on top of a hill makes wandering around the pedestrianized streets a bit problematic.
