It is not often a trek in a village requires walking boots
but these and winter jackets
have been listed as vital for the Caves, Castles and Christmas walk led by rangers from the Peak District National Park Authority.
The event takes place on Saturday, December 11th, starting at Castleton Visitor Centre and featuring Peveril Castle and some of the local caves, with the walking on easy pavements and paths.
However, being well prepared for bad weather could be a very wise move as a continuation of the recent arctic conditions may make for a cold and snowy day.
Any picture postcard image of Christmas may be added to by the request that participants wear Santa hats.
Those wanting to brave a winter walk in the High Peak may find it vital to have Ordnance Survey maps
, particularly on the high moors where the terrain is flat and featureless, making good navigation essential.
