Set below Kinder Scout in the valley of Edale in the Derbyshire Peak District, pretty Edale village is a hub for walkers, with a network of footpaths leading into the neighbouring hills. It’s claimed that the Pennine Way begins here, heading north to the Scottish Borders from the village’s Nag’s Head pub, the first watering hole along the route. Visitors are catered to with a large car park (there’s a train station too, on the Sheffield to Manchester line) along with cafés housed in the area’s typical stone buildings. A Visitor Centre has maps, guidebooks and outdoor clothing.
