Country issues explored

Place names like Windy Knoll and Odin Mine evoke Derbyshire's spectacular landscape. A good resource book for teachers at key stages 2 to 4, High Peak Estate provides dozens of ideas for those planning to study or, better still, visit this area of harsh moors, plunging valleys and rolling farmland. Rare birds, such as the red grouse and ring ouzel have their place, as do the sheep and cattle that are farmed on the bleak slopes. But the impact of tourism and the legal question of access to wild places add economics and politics to the consideration of natural beauty. High Peak Estate by Jo Trotter costs pound;8 from the High Peak Estate Office, Edale End, Hope, Hope Valley S33 6RF.
