Walkers' shelter up for Peak cash
Bookmark and Share
A shelter for walkers in the Peak District could be upgraded if a public consultation decides to allocate a £5,000 grant that is up for grabs.

The money will be spent by the National Park Authority to celebrate 60 years since it was founded, with an online vote being held to decide what to do with the cash.

People who like to go walking in the park can vote for additions to a shelter and information point at Grindsbrook Booth, close to Edale and on the Pennine Way.

The enhancements would see more information provided for visitors, new benches outside and a door fitted to keep sheep out.

Other proposals include improving the viewpoint at Monsal Head, restoring the summit markers at Stanage Head - which mark the boundary between Yorkshire and Derbyshire - or planting new tress and hedgerows.

Voting continues until December 11th, giving those who fancy taking off their backpacks and enjoying a little rest in the Grindsbrook Booth shelter a few more days to offer their support.

Walkers taking the alternative route up the Pennine Way from Edale can enjoy the National Trust shelter at Lee Farm, close to the foot of Jacob's Ladder.
