National Parks are very special places. They are designated for their outstanding natural beauty, wildlife, cultural heritage and the opportunities they offer for enjoyment.
The Peak District became the UK's first National Park in 1951. In many places it looks wild and rugged but in reality such areas are extremely fragile. Every year millions of people choose to visit and explore the Peak District which can put ever-increasing pressure upon the landscape and can impact the people who live and work here.
