Visitors can once more see the famous Monsal viaduct, near Bakewell, in its full glory, thanks to volunteer rangers who cut back nine years of ash and blackthorn growth.

Thousands of walkers, cyclists and horseriders come to Monsal Head every year to enjoy the view of the Headstone Viaduct which strides across the limestone landscape of Monsal Dale.

But until earlier this year they increasingly had to peer through branches which have grown profusely up the valley sides since they were last cut in 2005.
