BET­TER BIRDER AC­CESS

Bird Watching (UK) - - News Wire -

Rossendale stone quar­ried from the south Pen­nines in the In­dus­trial Rev­o­lu­tion has been re­turned to the Peak District to pro­tect eroded ar­eas of the Na­tional Park. The pop­u­lar­ity of the path, from Rushup Edge to the Brown Knoll trig point on Kinder Scout, has led to loss of veg­e­ta­tion and dam­age to the peat. The re­cov­ered flag­stones have been used to cre­ate a 1.5-mile foot­path that should help the re­cov­ery of the im­por­tant blan­ket bog habi­tat, while im­prov­ing ac­cess for bird­ers in the area.
