Ethel Haythornthwaite (left) working with John Dower (centre) on the Hobhouse Committee in the 1930’s on work that would eventually lead to the establishment of the first National Park in the Peak District on the 17th of April 1951.
Today marks the 70th anniversary of the establishment of the Peak District National Park – the first National Park in Great Britain.
We will present a ‘little gift’ to mark the birthday on Thursday 22 April. We are indebted to everyone that worked tirelessly to establish the National Park, and everyone that strives to Protect Respect and Enjoy this remarkable landscape today. Happy 70th Birthday !!!
