Our John Muir Award group joined the Peak Park Rangers to help clear vegetation from Hob Hurst’s House on Beeley Moor. Their hard work will help to preserve this unique square burial mound which dates from the Bronze Age, making it over 3,000 years old. The site was also one of the first monuments in Great Britain to be taken into state care and is now carefully managed by the Peak District National Park Authority and its volunteers. Well done to this great group of students from our Learning Support Department for helping to protect this special place.
The John Muir Award encourages people of all backgrounds to connect with, enjoy and care for wild places. For more information about the award, go to www.johnmuirtrust.org
