A replacement for the Peak District landmark Stanage Pole is being prepared after plans to put it up were approved.

The marker has been missing from Hallam Moors, close to Stanage Edge, since last year when it was removed as the timber structure had rotted.

A larch tree trunk, sourced from the Stanage-North Lees estate, will be hoisted into place on the same spot on April 17 during a ceremony to mark the Peak District National Park’s 65th anniversary.

The park’s planning committee granted permission this week.

A pole has stood on the moors, marking the border of Derbyshire and Yorkshire, for several hundred years.
