Popular Peak District path to be restored

Have your say

A popular Peak District footpath is to be restored.

Whinston Lee Tor permissive path on Moscar Moor, which stretches along Derwent Edge overlooking Ladybower Reservoir, is to be resurfaced later this month.

It forms part of a larger Private Lands Project in which moorland-owners and farmers are working together with Moors for the Future and Natural England to restore Sites of Special Scientific Interest.

Matthew Scott-Campbell, who manages the Private Lands Project, said: “Whinston Lee Tor affords magnificent views over the countryside, and it’s great that the landowner and tenant

provide this path so that people can get out and enjoy it, but its wildlife habitats need to be protected from the inevitable wear and tear that this brings.”
