To help mark the 50th anniversary of the Peak Centre, Edale, and to celebrate all that is good about the Chesterfield Archdeaconry, Archdeacon Carol and Ben Acty, warden at the Peak Centre, invite you to join them for a family walk on Saturday, 31st August 2019.
The walk will start at 10.30 am at the Peak Centre, S33 7ZA.
Ben will lead you on a pleasant walk around the Edale area, which will take in Edale itself, Barber Booth, and a part of the Pennine Way.
The walk will last between two and four hours and will be tailored to suit the group on the day.
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.
It caters mainly for primary school children and offers residential stays and day group activities.
