Major conservation work on Kinder Scout

Kinder Scout

Kinder Scout is one of the most iconic landscapes in the Peak District because of its vast open moorland, the wildlife that it is home to and because it was the setting for the Mass Trespass in 1932.  However, it is also one of the most damaged areas of moorland in the UK and its future is in jeopardy as a result of catastrophic wildlfires, a long history of overgrazing, air pollution and the routes that thousands of visitors have taken. 

There are currently proposals for a major programme of conservation work to restore the area so that it can be enjoyed by future generations.  These proposals include the plan to erect a fense around the area to keep sheep out.  You can read about these proposals and have a say on them in the public consultation on the new website http://www.kinder-scout.co.uk/
