Further Information

In the heart of the Peak District between the spectacular Derwent Valley and Kinder Scout, Hagg Farm offers high quality outdoor education and residential visits for schools and groups. Hagg Farm has been a centre of excellence for outdoor education in the Peak District since 1989 and welcomes schools, youth groups, sports clubs, families and groups of friends. Walks from the door of the centre lead onto the high moors of Kinder Scout and Bleaklow and around the Ladybower reservoirs and dams.

Our programmes for schools enrich the curriculum by bringing the outdoors to life and help young people achieve their potential by increasing confidence, promoting healthy activity and fun.
