Cash boost for Three Peaks project
Bookmark and Share
The Yorkshire Dales National Park Authority's Three Peaks project has been given a major financial boost with a £1,500 donation.

In August this year the Jane Tomlinson's Walk For All event took place as part of the inaugural Yorkshire Dales Walking Festival, with 2,000 people turning up in their walking boots and waterproofs.

National Park Authority chief executive David Butterworth said: "The donation to our Three Peaks Project will enable us to continue managing the paths so that others can enjoy them long into the future."

The Three Peaks Project is intended to help maintain paths and the general environment around Whernside, Ingleborough and Pen-y-Ghent, with every year seeing thousands of people taking on the challenge of doing all three in a day.

It is not the first piece of good news for the trio of mountains and their surrounding area this month, as owners of Ingleton's Skirwith Quarry Hanson Aggregates recently donated 1,500 tonnes of gritstone from the open-cast site to help with the repairs of a path from the village to the summit of Ingleborough.
