2006 Derwent Edge, Peak District, Derbyshire
Issued as part of Royal Mail's 'British Journey' set.
Derwent Edge is one of the string of exposed millstone grit escarpments that run from the top of the Derwent Valley all the way to Chatsworth and beyond. It lies above the Upper Derwent Valley, and the Ladybower reservoir, in the Peak District National Park in the English county of Derbyshire.
This is the Dark Peak of the Peak District and forms a stark contrast to the more gentle, yet no less dramatic, limestone valleys of the White Peak that are far below and to the south of Derwent Edge.
What makes Derwent Edge particularly special are the rocky tors that are sprinkled along the route. These weathered gritstone outcrops form all manner of wonderful shapes, with equally colourful names - Salt Cellar, Cakes of Bread and Wheelstones.
