Ramblers backs Roaches decision

The Peak District National Park Authority's decision to award the lease to run the Roaches estate to the Staffordshire Wildlife Trust has been endorsed by the Ramblers.

Responding to the news, area chairman of Staffordshire Ramblers for the Staffordshire Peak District and Leek Graham Rothery said he was "delighted" the trust was picked.

"The Roaches are a very important local and national resource and a very popular place to walk, climb and just take in the fantastic views of Staffordshire, Cheshire and Derbyshire Peak District," he added.

Mr Rothery noted that the Ramblers anticipates working with the trust to help it maintain and plan walking routes around the Roaches estate.

The Ramblers noted that it campaigned for many years for the public to enjoy full right-to-roam access on the Roaches estate, which bore fruit when it was listed as access land in the Countryside and Rights of Way Act 2000.

National park bosses picked Staffordshire Wildlife Trust's bid for the 125-year lease ahead of rival offers from the National Trust and the Land Trust.
