Darwin Lake is situated on the edge of the Peak District National Park.

The purpose of a National Park is to protect the more attractive parts of the country from being spoilt and to set aside areas for people who live in towns and cities to enjoy open air recreation.

It has an area of approx 555 square miles covering a large amount of Derbyshire plus adjoining parts of Staffordshire, Cheshire, Greater Manchester, and South and West Yorkshire.

The emblem is a locally quarried millstone and these will be seen beside many of the roads leading into the park. Around 22 million day visitors come each year!

A visit to the Peak District is guaranteed to be an unforgettable experience; it contains areas of natural outstanding beauty from the rolling valleys of the White Peak to the harsher, wilder gritstone edges of the Dark Peak in the North.

There are also many market towns and quaint villages maintaining traditional customs and values.

There is something for everyone from tots and teens to couples, families and groups, a selection of which are shown here, detailing activities and attractions from the most active to the more sedate!
