'Access Peak District' is a series of short films narrating by and starring John Harris, a former UK Paralympian, as he travels round the Peak District in the heart of England showing how wheelchair users and people with mobility problems can enjoy the Peak District National Park.

In the films you can see John getting around using his own wheelchair, hand-cranked bikes, a powered wheelchair and an abseil rope to experience the national park.

The films were commissioned by the Peak District National Park Authority in 2008 and filmed and edited by Axess Film.
