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…

Ranger Base Track Installed

We have taken the first steps towards our new ranger base. The first track to the new site has been completed in spite of all the rain, so later on this year we’ll be able to start making the area secure. We’re looking forward to moving all our machinery and equipment here, which will make the back drive and other visitor areas much safer.
