So, The national trust - https://twitter.com/PeakDistrictNT - have conducted some very clumsy repair work to some great, natural trails around the Peak District.
Some work may have been needed, but they've ripped out all the natural features before chucking a load of stone chips down - it's now featureless and crazy fast for MTB and horrible to run or walk on, as it's loose.
I'm sure something more sympathetic could have been done. After consulting the people who use it maybe.
The coldwell clough work has destroyed a section similar to Jacobs Ladder, which of course could be next.
If you're on Twitter and have some ideas, maybe join in here... https://twitter.com/pauljbarton/status/440172309806972928
It's already getting a lot of RT action and mostly agreement with #vandalisingthepeaktrails
