Those wanting to go walking
in the Peak District may receive a boost in one area as a local authority has received a cash grant to help encourage the activity.
Bradfield Parish Council has received £5,300 towards its "Walkers are Welcome" programme, which commences on September 19th, the Peak District National Park Authority has said.
It is aiming to raise the number of visitors and produce a series of walking guides.
The funding has come from the Department for Agriculture, Fisheries and Foods
and is one of several green grants being provided for a variety of projects around the country.
Bradfield's scheme launch coincides with the opening of a new wooden bridge made by a craftsman in Edale.
It is not the only such structure to provide a new crossing for walkers in a national park, after a drystone bridge was donated to the Yorkshire Dales National Park Authority earlier this month.
The structure was built by the Otley and Yorkshire Dales branch of the Dry Stone Walling Association and is being re-assembled stone by stone over a stream in Wensleydale.
