Volunteers are needed to help with conservation work at the BMC-owned Horseshoe Quarry in the Peak District on Saturday 18 January 2020.

Over the last few years, the access path around the car park boulders at Horseshoe Quarry has gradually been getting more muddy, making the approach after wet weather increasingly unpleasant. The plan for this volunteer work day is to spread limestone aggregate across the wet and muddy areas to improve access and encourage visitors to use the track itself rather than being forced to walk along it’s margins to keep feet dry. 

This will be a joint work day between climbers, walkers and the Peak Park Conservation Volunteers so hopefully we can get a good turnout from BMC members and the wider outdoor community to help improve the access to this very popular climbing and walking venue. 


Saturday 18 January 2020, meeting for a quick briefing in the car park (grid ref. SK 208 761) before getting stuck in – briefing time to be confirmed but likely to be around 10am.

If you arrive later please find Dave Cramp (PDNPA Conversation Volunteers Officer) before starting work.

 What to bring:

Cake will be provided during the day and we’ll head to a local pub for chips and sandwiches once we’re finished, but you may want to bring a packed lunch too.

Water or a flask

Old clothes and sturdy footwear you don’t mind getting dirty

Warm and wet weather gear depending on the forecast.

See you all there!
