The Peak District trig point challenge

If you’re looking for a New Year’s resolution, or just to set yourself a goal, why not take on the Peak District trip point challenge? There are 88 trig points that fall within the boundaries of the Peak District and they mark a reference point on high ground, so it’s the perfect challenge if you’re wanting to get out and do more walking.

If you’re local to the Peak District then this is the perfect lockdown activity. If you’re not local, pop it on your list for when we can travel again.

I’ve not done all of these yet and I’ve found this list through various other websites so I’ll keep updating this post with the recommended walks as and when I tick them off. I’ve also included the grid references so that you can easily find them.

Good luck!
