The 190-mile route, designed by the Friends of the Peak District, takes in the Derbyshire Dales, the edges of Sheffield and Oldham and parts of Staffordshire and Cheshire.

Julie Gough, from the Friends of the Peak District, said: "One of the reasons for devising the route was to raise awareness of the edge of the National Park and its magnificent landscapes – and to encourage people to cherish and protect them."

"The walk follows existing paths and trails and takes you away from the usual ‘honeypots’, into quieter, less well-known corners of the Park, giving you a new perspective on the Peak District."
