Broadcaster hails 'beautiful Peak District'
Bookmark and Share
Keen ramblers who want to go walking in attractive and challenging locations may want to head to the Peak District.

The national park has just been commended by broadcaster Simon Groom for its "beautiful landscapes", the Sheffield Telegraph reports.

Best known for his stint as Blue Peter presenter between 1978 and 1986, the 61-year-old is vice president of charity group Friends of the Peak District.

Since the group depends on donations in order to keep operating, three charity walks have been scheduled to take place to generate funds.

Mr Groom will be among those stepping out in his walking boots to participate in a seven-mile walk in April, which will take in locations such as Monsal Dale, Brushfield, Great Longstone and Cresssbrook.

However, the broadcaster admitted he might have to stop occasionally throughout the trek to admire the views.

"There will be plenty of time to chat about Blue Peter and life after it," Groom added.ADNFCR-2803-ID-801303286-ADNFCR
