White Peak - perfect for Bronze and Silver expeditions AND... Dark Peak - perfect for Gold 

Your grandparents could have been arrested and jailed if they had done a DofE expedition here. Back in the day it was illegal to walk on Kinder Scout so local walkers organised a mass trespass in 1932 and five of them were locked up. But their renegade action paid off and funnily enough, the Peak District ended up as the UK’s first National Park a few decades later! So now you can walk this heather-covered moorland without fear of being thrown in the clink. An expedition here looks great on your CV and is really easy to get to by bus and train from Sheffield, Manchester and Leeds and you can walk the Trans Pennine Trail, part of the E8 Walking Route connecting the Peak District to Turkey some 2,500 miles away!

Take a look at our Peak District gallery for an idea of what an expedition here is like...
