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.

Project summary

Mosaic was a project designed to get folks outdoors who may not typically feel comfortable in the countryside. Using the Mosaic Champion Model this project recruited and trained volunteer Champions from under-represented groups and these individuals organised their own walks throughout the South West Peak.

Champions returned to their communities after training to encourage and facilitate other people from their community to visit and enjoy the South West Peak. Introducing new and excited groups of people to the South West Peak and encouraging them to build a connection with the place and its unique heritage continues to be exceptionally rewarding for everyone involved. Support and assistance was provided by Landscape Partnership staff and staff from the Peak District National Park.
