Join Moors for the Future Partnership and the BMC Peak Area on Tuesday 27 June for an evening walk on Bleaklow.

The Moors for the Future team will talk about recent works carried out on the South Pennine moors to transform bare peat and degraded moorland into healthier, recovering blanket bog.  It's an opportunity to find out about the way the work is done (ever wondered what all those white dumpy bags are doing up on the moors?), and why £32 million has been invested in this work over the last 15 years.

Starting shortly after 6.30 pm, this evening walk will make use of extra daylight hours to walk from Snake Pass summit (O.S. grid ref. SK 087 929) on and sometimes off-path, to visit the scene of some of the Moors for the Future Partnership’s recent work.  Although relatively short, participants should come prepared for a little rough and possibly wet ground plus the possibility of walking into darkness (head torches essential) should unplanned delays occur.

Please let the BMC Peak Area Hill Walking Volunteer Representative Peter Judd know, should you be interested in coming along to what promises to be a fascinating and enlightening experience, by sending him an email to peak10roam-bmc@yahoo.co.uk
