The Peak District is almost suburban but its actually really dangerous to wander around unprepared for much of the year. The fact you can see streetlights in the distance is not that useful when you''ve got a peat bog between you and them (and its blowing a gale and sleeting into the bargain).

The particular danger in the UK is that everything looks harmless. Where I live now is not as benign but it still catches people out -- you can be less than a mile from backyards and still die from exposure. It pays to know your limits and to be prepared at all times.
