High Peak Moors Vision & Plan
We’re developing a ‘Vision and Plan’ in consultation which will create a vision and guide the management of the High Peak Moors in the Peak District over the next 25 years. The plan will cover the moorland areas centred around Kinder and Bleaklow which the National Trust cares for on behalf of the nation.
