Books by Martin Smith
Martin was a transport planner with the Peak District National Park for many years before moving to work for Derbyshire County Council. He has an intimate knowledge of much of the National Park, but his keenest interest is in the area's industrial archaeology, especially its transport and, of course, the old coaching inns. Martin began walking the hills of Derbyshire at the tender age of 5 when his father took him up on Kinder Scout. It was his father's love of walking, in particular his affection for Kinder Scout, that first aroused Martin's enthusiasm for hiking, an enthusiasm that has grown over the years.
