Yorkshire Three Peaks to get cash for path repairs
Bookmark and Share
Those planning to put on their hiking boots and take on the Yorkshire Three Peaks Challenge are to be boosted by a grant to pay for repairs to part of the route.

A proposal was one of the blueprints competing for a cash prize to be announced at the Friedrichshafen OutDoors show, with the European Outdoor Conservation Association agreeing to include it on its top ten list of European conservation schemes.

It means a new path will be built to bypass an area between Horton Moor and Black Dubb Moss near Pen-y-Ghent and help ensure the survival of the fragile habitat.

The Yorkshire Dales Millennium Trust had bid for the money in a bid to reduce erosion in the area, caused by the many thousands of walkers taking on the popular route.

This time of year is also a popular time for the National Three Peaks Challenge, due to the long daylight hours.

Areas such as Glen Nevis have seen an influx of minibuses as groups take on Ben Nevis in the Scottish Highlands before taking on England's highest peak of Scafell Pike and finally the Welsh summit of Snowdon.
