THOUGHTLESS visitors left one of the Peak District’s most beautiful parklands strewn with rubbish – as the same problem continues to plague the Peak District’s open spaces on a daily basis as the heatwave continues.
Sheep and deer were forced to graze amid empty beer cans, plastic bags, bottles and crisp packets in Chatsworth Park after visitors discarded their rubbish in the grassland despite being just a few hundred yards from bins at the nearby car park.
Staff at the Duke and Duchess of Devonshire’s estate filled two skips with rubbish cleared from around the park over the weekend.
What is the answer? People are now being actively encouraged to visit the Peak District, but sadly this also brings out the scrutters and low life who have no self respect and accept that leaving litter is a way of life because they probably live in a shit hole. Perhaps you cann’t have it all!
