Access to Peaks Prohibited

From Mar 2023 until further notice.

Access to specific areas of the Peaks National Park is currently prohibited.

This is due to concern over the impact of multiple plant pathogens that are affecting endemic tree species within the Peaks National Park.

Investigations are underway.

The original restriction was installed in March 2023 and has now been extended until further notice whilst a report based on research conducted is being drawn.
