Promoting biodiversity on the White Peak Loop

Thanks to volunteers from Groundwork Nottingham and local Sustrans volunteers who have been out this week clearing grass from a section of the White Peak Loop at Rowsley sidings.

The Loop is operated by Derbyshire County Council but our Rangers help in cutting and removing grass.

At the same time as promoting the health and wellbeing of the volunteers, this work also encourages wildflowers such as red campion and meadowsweet to flourish on the trail-side verges, which is good for bees and butterflies.

Volunteers also cleared back overhanging brambles and nettles to stop encroachment, sweeping leaves off the boardwalk, as part of the partnership working between the District and County councils, Sustrans and Groundwork.

The work will be much appreciated by all trail users, including pushchair users, cyclists and walkers.
