Three Peaks group celebrates 100th member
Bookmark and Share
A body set up to conserve the three mountains that make up the Yorkshire three peaks challenge has just recruited its 100th member.

The Yorkshire Dales National Park Authority set up Friends of the Three Peaks last August and has reached 100 members with the arrival of 70-year-old Kevin Macbeth, the authority notes.

Mr Macbeth's wife Barbara then became member number 101.

The body concerns itself with the upkeep of footpaths around Whernside, Pen-y-ghent and Ingleborough as thousands of people wearing walking gear attempt the challenge of climbing all three every year.

Mr Macbeth, who completed the challenge with his wife in 1998, welcomed the creation of the society.

"I think the Three Peaks Project is great - the paths have to be maintained and this encourages people to help look after them."

Trail Magazine recently invented its own alternative Yorkshire Three Peaks route including Great Shunner Fell, noting that this - rather than Pen-y-Ghent - is the third highest peak in Yorkshire.
