Walkers are being urged to show their love for the Peak District by supporting, local countryside charity, Friends of the Peak District’s annual Magnificent walk on this Saturday, 13th April.

There are three walks to choose from, something for.

The toughies can go for the Marathon 25 miler, taking in Great Longstone, Foolow, Grindleford, Baslow and Bakewell. While those who prefer a more leisurely pace can choose the stunning views of the eight mile Monsal Dale walk.

For children and cake-lovers, there’s also a very special treasure hunt and three mile walk – The Three Cakes Challenge

Simon Groom, former Blue Peter presenter and vice president of Friends of the Peak District, will be at this year’s event. He said: “ “It’s so easy to take the beautiful Peak District for granted and forget how the area is so fragile and vulnerable. Its unique location as a National Park, situated between so many major towns and cities, puts huge pressure on its space, land and wildlife.”
