Kinder project gains funding
Bookmark and Share
Those who like to go walking in the Peak District will see a different Kinder Scout in a few years' time, after the National Trust secured funding for a major revegetation project.

It has announced a £2.5 million budget has been secured for the undertaking, which will start next spring, with cash coming from a range of sources including United Utilities to Natural England's Environmental Stewardship scheme.

Over five years, the blanket peat bog will be transformed into a verdant area through the planting of a number of species, reversing 200 years of damage caused by pollution, grazing and fires.

General Manager for the National Trust in the Peak District Mike Innerdale said: "We've decided to take action with our partners to save Kinder for future generations."

The Trust recently launched a Facebook page to discuss the possibility of protecting the plateau from grazing with a sheep-proof fence, which would have stiles to allow access for walkers.
