Easy Access

 

Its not all steep climbs and rough paths in the Peak District.
 
Since 2005 Moors for the Future Partnership have been working to improve access to the moors for people with walking difficulties (including wheelchair access), elderly people and families with small children - even to areas classed as Access Land, where local authorities are not under obligation to remove barriers.
 
Moors for the Future kick started the work early in 2005 by hosting a 'Moors for All' Conference.
Presentations by leading figures in access and disability issues were followed by workshop sessions. Delegates highlighted some of the barriers to moorland access encountered in the Peak District moorlands.
 
In the ensuing three and a half years Moors for the Future Partnership completed access improvement works at seven moorland locations. These works included removing unnecessary barriers such as steps and stiles and providing smooth continuous surfaces for easier walking, wheelchair & pram use to encourage 'Access for All'.
