About David

David is one of our two Farm Link Workers, hosted by the Peak District National Park and working on the Future Farmscapes project. He will be providing a first port of call for farmers and landowners wishing to engage with the partnership. David’s role will be to represent the views of farmers within the partnership, assist them with bids for funding as well as liaising with project officers to support any works being carried out.

David was born and bred in the Peak District, and has lived there all his life. He is a farmer’s son, therefore has a strong connection with the farming communities of the South West Peak. He is married with two children. David is currently working towards a BScs Environmental Management and Science degree with the Open University, and has a wealth of practical skills having spent his life as a builder and helping on the farm. He is passionate about the landscape, and wants to do his upmost to protect the local environments for his two young children to enjoy in the future.

In his down time, David enjoys walking, bicycle riding and the outdoors in general. He enjoys playing and watching sport, particularly rugby union and has been known to enjoy the occasional pint of real ale!
