We organised a successful consultation event about forming a new Peak Hydro Forum on 3 July. It was well attended by a mix of site-owners and managers plus other groups interested in things like ecology, sustainability and archaeology.


There was plenty of enthusiasm for forming a Peak District wide forum to help promote good practice in micro hydro and encourage more schemes to be developed. We’ll be arranging a follow up meeting shortly to look at the aims, structure and status of the forum.


We’re working jointly with Sustainable Bakewell, and if you want to get involved please contact Andy Tickle or fill in an initial survey at


We’ll also be holding some workshops about micro hydro in the autumn to spread the word, so watch this space…
