Those who like to Go Walking on Kinder Scout can have their say on a proposal to fence in the summit plateau to keep sheep away from projects to reintroduce vegetation to the largely barren landscape.

Partly caused by grazing and also by industrial pollution from nearby cities, the top of the 2,088 ft mountain is largely bare peat and the National Trust has opened a Facebook page for discussion on its plan to keep sheep away so plants can take root.

It said this does not mean those coming up in their walking boots will be excluded, with gates or stiles to allow humans access to the moor, famous for the Great Trespass in 1932 when it was private land out-of-bounds to most people.

There are various routes up the mountain, which is crossed by the Pennine Way, although this does not touch its summit.

Among these are William Clough on the Hayfield side and Jacob's Ladder from Edale.
