I am going up to the peak District for a few days shortly and want to do some landscapes. Can anyone recommend the best places which do not involve to much steep climbing or long walks (I get stiff legs)

Mam Tor & Hope Valley are good. Mam Tor does require effort, but it has a car park that is probably more than 1/2 way up, and a road that takes you up another good section. That said, the final section has a number of steps and the path is a little steep in places. Still its in good condition, and if you take your time - as long as you are in reasonable health - you'll be fine.

Curbar and Derwent Edge have to be the ultimate easy walk for a lot of return. No climbing and a good easy stroll from the car park.

Padley Gorge from the station car par park is hardly taxing and even Higger Tor is a very easy climb. Lawrence Field involves a short walk and no climbing. Park at Surprise View and cross the road for that but Surprise View itself is a level walk.

Ladybower & Derwent reservoirs are classics, and Stanton-in-the-Moor is worth a look
