National Parks Week Guided Walk & Talk: Countryside of Warslow

Date: Thursday 11 April

Time: 11:00

Join the South West Peak Landscape Partnership and celebrate National Parks Week with a guided walk and talk through the beautiful countryside of Warslow on Thursday 11 April at 11:00am!

This walk will meet at Warslow Village Hall where we will discuss the history of this unique area, and the important role that it plays in the Peak District National Park. Our route will then take us down towards the River Manifold where we will have the opportunity to learn about the essential role that the rivers of the South West Peak play in sustaining both local communities and wildlife. We will then continue our adventure with a stroll towards Ecton Mine and have a chat about the colourful role that mining and industry have played in this often overlooked, but historically-rich, area. On our way back to the Village Hall we will also have the opportunity to discuss ongoing work that is seeking to improve hay meadow diversity in Warslow and the South West Peak area in general.

This walk has something for everyone so make sure you book now to avoid disappointment!
