The BCA Conservation and Access Committee are very grateful to the Eastern Moors Partnership for hosting the Derbyshire hub of our meeting at their offices at Barbrook Cottage, with the stunning back drop of the Peak District. The meeting was a great success, with regional council and constituent body reps joining forces to discuss and share advice on what is happening in the world of conservation and access across the UK. Thanks to all those who participated in the lovely discussion and helped me to get a better understanding of where we’re at in the UK right now, and where we are heading for the future.
Eastern Moors is a partnership between the National Trust and the RSPB, managing the strip of the Peak District right on the edge of Sheffield and Chesterfield. This area encompasses breathtaking open moorland, wooded valleys and the spectacular eastern gritstone edges. An area home to a huge variety of wildlife, the Eastern Moors is also a place for people, from runners and mountain bikers to artists and dog walkers; everyone is welcome to explore our moorlands.
