Dr David Clarke talked about the mysterious Longdendale Lights and other legends of Derbyshire’s Peak District in a new BBC series marking the 50th anniversary of The Pennine Way.

In this four part series polar explorer and ocean diver Paul Rose takes on a challenge closer to home, presenting a fascinating history, geography and flora and fauna of this diverse trek across the backbone of England.

David was interviewed by Paul on the path descending from Torside Clough on Bleaklow to discuss the legends of the Peak including the phantom lights that haunt the upper Longdendale Valley.
