Published by the GA in conjunction with the British Geomorphological Research Group.

Prepared by a subject expert, each guide has full colour photographs, high quality original cartography and illustration and, with the support of the Ordnance Survey, OS map extracts.

This book provides a comprehensive overview of the range of classic landforms which characterise the Dark Peak. It identifies key stages in the evolution of the Peak District landscape.

Using examples of localities in the Dark Peak, the authors provide an up-to-date review of current ideas and knowledge of landforms on the western margins (Goyt Valley and The Roaches), the northern margins (Edale and Kinder Scout and Mam Tor) and the eastern margins (the Derwent edges, tors in the Hathersage area and the Ashover anticline). Each section includes clear maps, diagrams and photographs and invaluable information on location and access. As with other titles in this series there is a glossary of terms and ideas for further reading.

White Peak and Dark Peak are concise and informative guides aimed at helping students and visitors enjoy and appreciate the area's striking and interesting scenery - Reviewed in Westside Magazine, July 1999
