Stanton Moor, a finger of gritstone amid limestone country, rises to 1,060 feet (323m) and is an open, breezy, heather-cld moorland giving glorious views across the valley of the Derwent. Its two chief characteristics, which form the main features of this short walk, are the curious rock formations and the vast number of prehistoric remains - burial chambers, standing stones, circles and fortifications - that litter the moor.
Birchover is a small village strung out along the hill that climbs to Stanton Moor. At its lower end, behind The Druid Inn, a path leads to the Rowtor Rocks, a gritstone outcrop worth exploring after the walk, both for its extensive views and its maze of caves and passages, where carved steps lead to staggered terraces. Many of these were the work of Thomas Eyre, an eccentric 18th-century clergyman, who also built, just beneath the rocks, the tiny village church.

I (rightly) assumed that More Peak District Walks would be a stack of new walks to complement the original Peak District Walks book.
However what Ordnance Survey have done is to basically split the original Peak District Walks book (mine) in half and include some of them in a newer version of Peak District Walks and some in More Peak District Walks. Plus some new walks in both.
So, because I have the older version of Peak District Walks and don't see why the heck I should purchase a new version when the old version is perfectly OK, I have a load of duplicate walks that feature in both my books.
A bit naughty, really, because they could have kept the original Peak District Walks as it was and compiled a set of new walks for More Peak District Walks.
Which is what most people would assume is the case when they buy More Peak District Walks to complement an existing copy of Peak District Walks.
And it seems from the reviews on Amazon that I'm not the only person to be disappointed.
Shame on you, Ornance Survey.
