The Wonders of the Peak platform lives on top of the open-source popular WordPress CMS. In addition to our efforts to build a collaborative community of content creators, we invite you to develop new experiences using the Wonders of the Peak content.
- A you a web or app developer?
- Do you have experience of interacting with web APIs (or are keen to learn)?
- Have you already used WordPress APIs?
- Are you looking for archives of geotagged digital content to power an experience?
If any of these are true then you may be interested in the Wonders of the Peak WordPress REST API.

The base of the API can be found at https://wondersofthepeak.org.uk/wp-json/wp/v2/ – visit this base URL to view the available API routes for accessing the Wonders of the Peak content.
Unfamiliar with WordPress APIs? Take a look at the official documentation.
Downtime: the API is provided for use as is with no liability for downtime on behalf of Ben Bedwell or Derbyshire County Council.
Data Caching and Re-use: the API allows bulk access to content. We encourage you to cache content wherever possible to avoid making too many API calls. Cached data should only be used by the initial requesting party, and not passed on to others.
Branding and Attribution: developers using the API must add acknowledgements to code, web pages and in other locations, attributing the content retrieved via the API to Derbyshire County Council. Any further attributions within the content (e.g. in image captions) must also be retained and displayed in their original form.
Rate Limits and Fair Use: access to the API is monitored but not currently rate-limited. Excessive use of the API, either through inefficient design or high numbers of users, will lead to rate limits. We encourage you to cache content wherever possible to avoid making too many API calls.
Versioning: the API may change with immediate effect, especially in response to security-related incidents.
Commercial Restrictions: use of the API for commercial applications is not allowed. Content served via the API is typically licensed under the Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial-NoDerivatives 4.0 License: clients must not use the API in ways that undermine this license.
Any technical enquiries about use of the Wonders of the Peak API should be directed to Ben Bedwell.
