People are being invited to help shape the future of Peak District beauty spot The Roaches by taking part in the last of a series of drop-in consultation events.

Staffordshire Wildlife Trust has been holding events for visitors to the reserve during September and October.

The consultation covers all aspects of the management of the reserve, including wildlife conservation, the cultural and archaeological heritage of the area as well as access and recreation.

Jon Rowe, Roaches warden, said: “The Roaches is a beautiful place.

“Popular with climbers, walkers and day trippers, the area is also of international importance for wildlife.

“We want to give everyone the opportunity to have their say on how the whole Roaches Estate is managed.”

The last in a series of consultation events will be held on October 11 at The Rock Public House, in Upper Hulme, between 11am and 6pm.
