About Woodlands of the White PeakJoin the rangers in the White Peak clearing areas of understorey and scrub to manage the woodlands and increase biodiversity.
Explore the woodlands of the White Peak while helping us with a large scale woodland management project. Working with staff and other volunteers, you will be clearing areas of understorey and scrub to improve the age structure of the woodlands and increase biodiversity. This work is part of our response to the threat of ash dieback. Due to the rough and steep terrain the work can be physically demanding.

The stable block also houses the main National Trust visitor facilities including the visitor centre, tea-room, shop and toilets.
