March 2013 meeting report

E-mail Print PDF

Our March meeting was a presentation by Thelma Griffiths of the National Trust, on the history of the Trust's Longshaw Estate, on the Eastern edge of the Peak District.   Familiar to walkers and lots of families from the South Yorkshire area for the popular Padley Gorge picnic spot, the Longshaw Estate is part of a larger managed area of woodland and moorland that once formed the Grouse shooting estates of the landed gentry in the early part of the 20th century. It is now home to the Moorlands Discovery Centre, Padley Gorge, and the lesser known tranquility of the Bole Hill Quarry below Surprise View. Thelma gave us a wonderful account of the history of the estate and its development under the ownership of the National Trust since 1931.
