We are CPRE Peak District and South Yorkshire but since 2002 we've also been known as Friends of the Peak District. We're still the same charity with the same passionate commitment to our countryside.
Many of our supporters know us as Friends of the Peak District.
We have welcomed the first instalment of Sheffield’s local plan
Planning is NOT an obstacle to progress, nor to building the homes we need.

Put a few handfuls of peanuts out. Return to the shadows and wait. Then they come. Strolling. Down the middle of the road. As if on passeggiata. A beautiful fox first. Then the snuffle of badger. The paths and roads are theirs. Humans hibernate.
Happy New Year ! Minus four outside the office today !! We are doing our very best to keep the office open and continue with our work within the confines of the lockdown. Email if you need to contact us. Stay safe everyone 🤞🤞 we’re grateful for your continued support.

With best wishes for a better year ahead. Have a safe New Year.
The freeze / thaw weather + the huge numbers of users = significant damage to verges and grassed areas across South Yorkshire and the National Park. Please park responsibly and on hard standing. @peakdistrict @PeakDistrictNT
Many of the roads in to the Peak District and the countryside of South Yorkshire have received several inches of snow but have NOT yet been gritted. Go carefully out there 👍❄️

A nice cup of tea out the weather ...
Cold out. Oyster Clough Cabin.

A very dreich afternoon in Edale. In amongst several visits i stopped in for a cuppa at Penny Pot Cafe and chatted solar energy (on a day without any of it !!).
Folks, we carried out some tests on the M1 today and confirmed that lane 1 will NOT bite you.
If you see:
• A police car alongside with the officer pointing to the left,
• One of our rear facing signs displaying ‘DO NOT LANE HOG’
move over or face a fine/points.

She says: “That road builders are even thinking of driving an expressway through a National Park sets a dangerous precedent.”
