This is an archived website, available until June 2027. We hope it will inspire people to continue to care for and protect the South West Peak area and other landscapes. Although the South West Peak Landscape Partnership ended in June 2022, the area is within the Peak District National Park. Enquiries can be made to

The 5-year South West Peak Landscape Partnership, 2017-2022, was funded by the National Lottery Heritage Fund.

Event Name Level 1 building and landscape survey
Start Date 24th Jun 2021 10:00 am
End Date 24th Jun 2021 4:00 pm
Duration 6 hours
Scheduled level 1 building and landscape survey – 24th and 25th June 2021
This survey is on Thursday 24th June and Friday 25th June for those volunteers who complete the online training on Wednesday the 23rd June to get out and practise, and for all those other volunteers already trained in level 1 building and landscape survey and want to get together with other volunteers to carry out fieldwork.
Those who have not yet done the training and intend to do it on Wednesday 23rd will be able to sign up but won't be assigned until after they have completed the training.
I will be along in person to support those newly qualified volunteers and others who need the support, but it is hoped more experienced surveyors will be able to come along and help those who need it too.
There are a number of incomplete grid squares and I am hoping we can finish off some of these off over these two days, so depending on numbers and experience we may split up and be in different places. The grid squares I am looking at are SK0857 (Butterton/Warslow and Elkstones); SK0860 (Warslow and Elkstones/Fawfieldhead); SJ9572 (Macclesfield Forest & Wildboarclough/Sutton/Macclesfield); and SJ9479 (Pott Shrigley/Bollington). What we don't complete will be carried over to scheduled survey days in July and August.
Meeting place then will be confirmed nearer the time
Sign up to one or both days (shifts) as you wish!
