Join us in Buxton for the Grand Opening of the Peak District Boundary Walk on Saturday 17th June 2017.

This brand new long distance footpath encircles the Peak District National Park. To help us celebrate the launch, Buxton Town Team are organising a one-off specialist outdoor fair on Buxton Market Place. Civic dignitaries, celebrities and other VIPs from across the region, will be gathering in Buxton to celebrate. And the walk will be officially opened by Emma Bridgewater, President of the Campaign to Protect Rural England.

Be one of the first to open the trail - join us for a celebration of 'first-footing' the route

We're looking for walkers and groups of walkers to open the route on launch day. The 190 miles are divided into 20 stages. To view all 20 start points and find your nearest one, and to register your walk CLICK HERE.
