CPRE Peak District and South Yorkshire also represent the Campaign for National Parks in the Peak District National Park
Find out more about our latest activities and campaigning.
We want to connect people to our beautiful countryside in the Peak District and South Yorkshire.
To celebrate our beautiful national park, we’ve devised a 200-mile walking route around its boundary.
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.

Brilliant news. Please do take the time to complete the survey. // @Campaign4Parks @CPRE
Jean Smart joined us in 1963 and was employed by the charity for over 30 years. Some 58 years after arriving she still actively supports the charity through her fundraising talks. We’re very grateful to her, and to @sheffielduni Womens Club for the donation. // @CPRE
It’s a bit wrong way round, but we’ve got you all a birthday present on OUR birthday. All will be revealed on Friday 🤫🤫🤫🤫 #EthelReady

🚌➡️🥾⛰ ....To Bleaklow by bus (not quite all the way there obviously !!). A ticket from Crosspool (Sheffield) to top o’ Snake Pass and then back from Ladybower Inn is £5. Thank you @hulleysofbaslow 👍👍
Some different perspectives on Winnats Pass in @peakdistrict from along the old ‘Guides Trod’ which traverses under the crags of the South lip. Not one for the faint of heart or unsteady of foot !! @Campaign4Parks @CPRE @journal_hope
High Cup Nick. A day trip away from Sheffield (on Friday) to the @NorthPennAONB to enjoy one of the best U shaped valleys in the land. Views (through the snow flurries) to @yorkshire_dales @lakedistrictnpa @FriendsofLakes and the Eden Valley
In good company .... Our Peak District Boundary Walk nestles alongside 24 other long distance trails in ‘Big Trails Volume 2’ from @vertebrate_publishing We are currently working on a revision of the guidebook for the walk. There’s lots of info on the PDBW on our website 🥾 🥾
We are currently updating our PDBW book and looking for 5 key sponsors of a 1 page advert each in the new edition. Ideally businesses that provide a service on or near the route or are connected with hillwalking. Please PM for further details.

To mark the occasion of the 70th birthday of @peakdistrict and the close working relationship between us, we (@cprepdsy and @CPRE ) presented a framed copy of the 1939 map of the proposed park boundary to @PeakChief and @peak_chair today. Happy 70th birthday the Peak District.

Are you unsure as to how the planning system fits together?
Does it all sound a bit technical?
Join our new training programme 'The Planning Jigsaw' which is aimed at community groups and non-planners and delivered in a plain-english style

#70People70Years - Tomo Thompson @cprepdsy
"…the reasons that the national parks were created remain vitally important today, and we must all do our part to continue the focus and efforts of those that came before us."
70 years ago, on 17 April 1951, @peakdistrict became the first #NationalPark in England. Here, @cprepdsy’s Dr Andy Tickle reflects on the work we and others did in getting to that point and looks to the future for #PeakDistrictNationalPark. #PeakDistrict > https://www.cnp.org.uk/blog/reflecting-70-years-peak-district-national-park
