Fifty miles of walking through the White Peak in Derbyshire, the Limestone Way starts in Castleton with great views and lots of limestone.
Created by West Derbyshire Council (now Derbyshire Dales Council) the route originally ended in Matlock, but was later extended to Rocester, just over the border in Staffordshire.
Joined by my partner Catherine, I walked the top half during a snow filled weekend in February 2012. The lower half was walked solo in September of the same year.
