Give back: Fight climate change in the Peak District


1. Give Back: Fight climate change in the Peak District

The dramatic landscape of the Peak District is one of the most beautiful areas of England, and you can do your bit to help keep it this way for years to come.

On an exclusive three-hour walk guided by friendly park rangers, you’ll find out how they’re trying to fight pollution and preserve England's oldest National Park. You’ll help with important restoration works, and if you're lucky, spot a hare or curlew whilst getting your hands dirty. From improving pathways to planting vital carbon-storing sphagnum moss, you’ll be doing your part to care for this precious habitat.

Some say that Chesterfield’s curious Crooked Spire church was created by unskilled medieval craftsmen, while others say it was the devil’s doing. Legends aside, visitors can now climb to the top for impressive views of the town and beyond.

3. Scramble up waterfalls in Derbyshire

Rain or shine, gorge walking through crags and caves is a must-do in Derbyshire. Walk and swim through crisp, clear waters, jump in natural pools and climb up waterfalls on this adrenaline-pumping activity. The resident sheep will definitely be watching on in amazement.

4. Ride horseback through the countryside

See some of the Peak District’s most beautiful spots, including the Three Shires Head (the meeting point between Cheshire, Staffordshire and Derbyshire) on the back of one of Northfield Farm’s horses or ponies. Trips last about two hours and really allow you to reconnect with nature.
