Peak District shortlisted for national award
Bookmark and Share
As summer approaches the number of people choosing to go walking in the Peak District is going to rise sharply.

Whether it is a pleasant amble along the Tissington Trail or a tough hike up Mam Tor, the possibilities for walkers are endless.

And it is for this reason that the Peak District has been shortlisted for a national award alongside numerous other popular outdoor pursuits locations.

The Peaks will be in direct competition against other top walking destinations - including Cornwall, the Cotswolds, the Lake District and the Yorkshire Dales and five others - in the Countryfile Magazine Awards.

Speaking to the Sheffield Star, David James, chief executive of the area's official tourist board, said: "It's great news, but no great surprise, that the Peak District is on the shortlist.

"We punch well above our weight as a leading British destination, with special and varied landscapes, quality attractions, activities and accommodation."

Voting for the accolade will close on Friday June 1st, so walkers wanting to show their support will have to act fast if their opinions are to be registered.

As well as favourite British holiday location, the annual awards will celebrate the best conservation project and most beautiful garden. Nine other categories will also be considered.ADNFCR-2803-ID-801368433-ADNFCR
