Progress on new ranger base

We've installed a fence around our new ranger base so we now have a secure place to store our vehicles and equipment. At the moment, it’s being used to store our Christmas trees, and we still have a few growing in there! We've submitted a planning application to the National Park Authority for a workshop and garages, which we're aiming to build in Spring.

Cheery new visitor welcome

We’re trying to make a friendlier welcome at Longshaw and we are experimenting with our new bright green shed. We’ve been getting a lot of comments about how cheerful it is. When you visit Longshaw, pop in and you’ll be able find out what you can do or see while you are here.

Sunshine after the rain

After a week of torrential downpours the car park has suffered some damage. We’re working on how to make long term improvements to help the car park cope better with this amount of rain. We realise it’s not looking it’s best at the moment, so please bear with us. It’s all part and parcel of being on a hillside in the Peak District uplands. Just think of the poor Longshaw rangers, who are feeling like Sisyphus at the moment…
