Northern Central England
Northern Central England is a true land of lore and legend. The various hills, moors and woodlands are overrun by gathering mists that bathe the area in romance and mystery.
Lush green hills, dry stone walls climbing up and down the moors, and farm animals grazing peacefully are the images that most capture Derbyshire. Nature manifests itself not only in agriculture but in the Peak District National Park, which is held mainly within Derbyshire's borders. Quaint villages, limestone caves, broad fields of green and gently flowing creeks and rivers make this park the most visited in Europe. Of course, you won't be the first one to walk the footpaths and fields of Derbyshire; traces of man's presence in the area tracks back 200,000 years.
Hilly and rural, Staffordshire is full of rustic charm. The county's chief allure comes from Cannock Chase, a place of immense beauty beneath covering trees and nestled alongside boulders and remnants of previous glacial periods. There are also castles, memorials and ruins that add an air of intrigue.
Nottinghamshire, the land of Robin Hood, draws hoards of tourists to Sherwood Forest and the city of Nottingham. There are also more than 400 sandstone caves for good measure. Creeks and rivers meander through the oaks spread across the hilly area. It's more than a match for visitors seeking the spirit of the Prince of Thieves.
Visitors to Northern Central England get to experience a place that has borne so many stories that it's as if they become characters in the rich local heritage themselves.
