A list of questions and answers has been published by the British Mountaineering Council concerning plans to fence in part of Kinder Scout in the Peak District by the National Trust.

The information may be of interest to those who like to get out their Ordnance Survey maps of the area and walk on the mountain.

It noted the fence is being put up around the plateau to keep out sheep while re-vegetation work takes place over a period of 15 years, correcting damage caused by grazing, human erosion, fires and industrial pollution over centuries.

The details also advised people will still be able to walk on the plateau as it has public access status and the Pennine Way crosses it in two places, with a public consultation set to decide on the form, number and locations of access points where humans can cross the fence.

Features of the Pennine Way path across the plateau include the waterfall of Kinder Downfall, a feature of which is the sight of most of its cascade being blown back up the mountain on a windy day.
