The Archdeacon of Chesterfield, the Venerable Carol Coslett, invites you to join her on a family friendly Peak District walk to celebrate Derbyshire’s beauty and goodness – and to mark the 50th anniversary of the Peak Centre at Edale.

The walk, at 10.30 am on Saturday, 31 August, will last between two and four hours and will be tailored to the abilities of those who come along on the day.

It will be led by the manager of the Peak Centre, Ben Acty, an experienced walker and outdoor activity leader.

Archdeacon Carol said: “Derbyshire has some of the most wonderful landscape in the country and we should celebrate that. The Peak District in particular has a rich diversity of wildlife, terrain and communities, and it is our responsibility to ensure we both enjoy and preserve it.

“This walk is about celebrating the scenery and communities we are privileged to walk among.

“It is great to be able to use the Peak Centre in Edale as the start of our Archdeaconry walk; the centre is such a great asset for the Diocese of Derby.

“Our walk will take us on a gentle exploration of the high peaks – all ages and dogs are welcome to join us. My Jack Russell, Fudge, at 16 is definitely up for it!”

In September, the Peak Centre at Edale celebrates 50 years of helping to get people of all ages and all faiths to enjoy outdoor pursuits whilst considering the values of being a Christian – or any other faith – such as respect, teamwork and trust.
