Woodland plan to preserve paths

Lawrence Field on the Longshaws Estate in the High Peak is to have a wooded section around a former gritstone quarry at Bole Hill fenced off to livestock to encourage the growth of more native woodland.

However, the British Mountaineering Council reports, access gates will ensure walkers can use both public rights of way and other established footpaths.

Over a km of drystone walls and 1.5 km of fencing will be restored in the operation, which will enable trees like oak and birch to grow freely.

It will link the woodland with the nearby Padley Gorge area of special scientific interest.
