For over 40 years the Peak Park Conservation Volunteers (PPCV) has worked with volunteers from all kinds of backgrounds, helping them to enjoy and understand the qualities of the Peak District National Park.  PPCV provides a unique opportunity for members of the public, whether as individuals, community groups, or staff from a commercial company, giving them the opportunity to help put something back by volunteering to help protect the environment.  As well as having a positive, informative, and fun experience through their volunteering activity.

The Peak District National Park lies between the cities of Sheffield and Manchester, and then stretches down into Derbyshire and Staffordshire at the very heart of England. Sprawling across six counties, it was Britain’s first National Park, and is home to wild and wonderful landscapes, and picture postcard English villages.

Within the park’s 555 square miles, you will find drastically different landscapes. The North of the park is dominated by an area called the Dark Peak. High and wild, its home to the untamed moorland summit Kinder Scout, the highest point in the Park. Towards the centre of the park, you will find the White Peak, a lower lying region of rolling farmlands, deep dales and semi-ancient woodland, named after the limestone dales formed in the Ice Age.  The patchwork landscape of the South West Peak is a mixture of moorland, woodland and farmland.
