Hopefully this will help in some small way to ensure that many others can share the enjoyment I’ve had from all three peaks over the years

We need to be good stewards of this earth. Mend Our Mountains is just one way to do that, and it enable us to continue enjoying the places that we love walking.

I ran the Yorkshire Three Peaks Ultra last week, and it was so clear that the descent off Whernside needs lots of work. Many of the other paths were fantastic - thank you for your hard work.

Alan Diggles 24th October 2018

Walked the routs several times and with many friends, some who are no longer with us, and some fantastic memories that I treasure.... I hope others have a chance to enjoy the fantastic experience.

I want the Dales paths to be there for my children and grandchildren. If we use them we have a duty to maintain them to ensure this happens whilst reducing the risk of damage to this wonderful countryside.
