It’s undeniable- the Peaks look stunning in the Autumn. Golden moors, deep red trees and pale misty mornings, we can’t get enough of it- and neither can our fantastic local photographers!
So, we wanted to celebrate this wonderful time of year by giving you a pictorial guide as to what this splendid season has in store for us over the next few months…
Firstly, let’s bask in the glory of the Autumnal tree!
Pictured below is a snap of Burbage Valley, and although the colours are warm, you can still almost feel the chill in the air!

Another aspect of the Peak District & Derbyshire that’s always particularly beautiful is the water.
The photo below is taken of Padley Gorge on the Longshaw Estate, a fantastic place to soak up that fresh Autumn feeling!
These photos are all by Phil Sproson.
We contacted Phil and asked him about taking this photo:
“Padley Gorge in autumn is a feast of colour, from the golden yellows and oranges, to the vibrant lime greens of leaves still hanging on to the trees; then there is the moss that coats rocks and tree trunks, it is sublimely beautiful”.
The image above was captured at Middle Black Clough, which can be found at the end of the Longdendale Valley. It’s a 20-30 minute walk from a free car parking area just off the A628, Woodhead Road.
Photographer Phil Spronson commented:
This picture shows the golden colours of Derwent Path- looks like a wonderful place for an Autumn walk!
This is a photo taken of Beresford Dale, where the River Dove passes through.
Another great place for natural water in Derbyshire is Lumsdale Valley near Matlock, and here it is below, photographed by James Grant
