The Lake District is a beautiful mountainous region in North West England. It is home to the tallest mountain in England, Scafell Pike (3,209ft / 978m).
The Peak District is an upland area in central and northern England. Despite its name, the landscape generally lacks sharp peaks, being characterised by rounded hills and gritstone escarpments (the "edges"). An area of great diversity, it is conventionally split into the northern Dark Peak, where most of the moorland is found and whose geology is gritstone, and the southern White Peak, where most of the population lives and where the geology is mainly limestone-based.
By popular vote on our Facebook poll we present the Canal Walk. We shall be walking along Birmingham's canal to Wolverhampton, then getting back on the train.

Leaving in the evening unexpectedly late,
But feeling talkative and great,
We drove to the South,
Only stopping to fill our mouth,
The usual fish and chip shop is where we ate,
Saturday in Dartmoor,
We gave the land a tour,
Mud and dead heather,
In between each Tor.
Getting back at about 2,
Having a nap whilst skies were still blue,
Then deciding to make,
A meal out of pancake,
Though most only ate a few.
We went for beers at the East Dart Hotel,
Staying there for a small spell,
Drinking ales such as Dartmoor or Devon Dew,
Others with some cider brew,
20 people set off in 2 buses bright and early on Sunday morning heading to the Wyre forest, apparently in Shropshire much to Pete’s annoyance, (threats of not colouring in maps properly were made).
After an eventful journey, which involved both buses getting geographically challenged in Bewdley we arrived at the car park.
Here we spilt into 2 groups with Callum and Julia and the other led my Pete and Craig, with a host of other walk leaders in tow. Callum's group headed south and east doing a short walk ending back up where we all started an hour before the other group.
