Trail launch is cancelled

The launch of Hartington’s new village trail, which was due to take place this weekend, has been cancelled because of the snow.

Created by villagers, the trail leads visitors back in time and encourages them to support local businesses.

It had been due to be launched on Saturday by Peak District National Park Authority chair Tony Favell and Hartington Parish Council but this has now been postponed.

The trail leaflet features a self-guided map, illustrations by local schoolchildren, and 11 points of interest put together by community groups.

Hartington Parish Council, community groups and Hartington Primary School worked with Peak District National Park and Derbyshire Dales District Council staff to create the leaflets and information panels.
