Peak Park 60th Anniversary

July 29, 2009
July 29, 2009 - Peak Park 60th Anniversary
-Older

Did you know that this week is National Parks Week?

Hoe Grange Holidays is ideally situated on the edge of the fabulous Peak District National Park created 60 years ago when the National Parks and Access to the Countryside Act was passed; its aim to ensure our best landscapes and its features were protected, providing generations with access to the great outdoors. As well as stunning views, National Parks are also habitats for diverse wildlife species, impressive geology and often hold special scientific interest.

National Parks Week

To mark this diamond anniversary, events will be taking place in National Parks throughout the UK.  Ranging from discovery walks looking at evidence of amazing climatic variations over the millennia, twilight bat hunting to historical walks, such as the local 5 mile walk this Friday 31st July at 10.30am from Baslow to Chatsworth, led by archaeologist John Barnett . On the walk “From Ducal Splendour to Quarrymen’s Delves”  walkers will see ancient oaks, the site of 16th century gardens, an ice pond, old drives, field banks, turnpike roads, older hollow-ways and millstone quarries dating back before Capability Brown created Chatsworth’s famous gardens. An easy walk with one rough section of terrain. Book now on 01629 816200 (cost free) - hopefully it will have stopped raining by then!!

There’s something for all ages, abilities and pockets and many of the events are free of charge – see here for more events in the Peak District http://www.nationalparks.gov.uk/visiting/nationalparksweek/npwevents.htm

So, whether your interests lie in sports such as climbing, horse riding, cycling or a simple relaxing picnic with family and friends, National Parks have something for everyone to enjoy. Why not come and stay at Hoe Grange Holidays and make the most of what the Peak District National Park has to offer?
