Project Spotlight: Better Outside in the Goyt Valley

Posted on 4 December 2017

The goal of the Better Outside project is to improve visitor experiences throughout the countryside of the South West Peak. This wide-reaching project has a goal of improving access in a number of areas for those who wish to fully enjoy the outdoors, but are also dealing with health or mobility issues.

As part of the plan for this project two walking routes in the vicinity of the Fernilee Reservoir will be upgraded to make them suitable for access by all visitors. Additionally, ten stiles with be replaced with wicket gates to make enjoying the area a little easier for those who want to fully experience the South West Peak.

In order to encourage visitors and the community to get out and enjoy these improvements we will also be offering interpretive talks and guided walks along the trails. So watch our Facebook, Twitter and this site for updates on Better Outside and all our projects as we will be posting dates and other information as the project progresses.
