Climbing location 'up for sale'
Bookmark and Share
The Peak District National Park Authority has revealed that it is considering the sale of a popular climbing area.

It is looking at the sale of the Roaches in Staffordshire, although a condition of this would be that those bringing their climbing gear would still have full access to the crags.

Alternatives include private firms taking a long-term lease on the estate or entering into a management partnership with the park, which bought the land in 1980.

Lead member for asset management at the park authority Roger Clarke said: "We are putting guarantees in place as part of any agreement to ensure the Roaches remains a highly popular area for climbing and walking."

The closing date for interested parties is July 30th.

Earlier this month, the national park approved plans for a 30-year leasing agreement under which the old railway station at Millers Dale on the Monsal Trail will be turned into a cafe and visitor centre by the Derbyshire Wildlife Trust.

The scheme depends on the trust being able to secure planning permission and the required £2 million of funding.
