- The Peak District is not the same as the Peak District National Park
I’ve lived in and around the Peak District for most of my life, and only yesterday did I learn that “The Peak District” is a fairly non-specific geographical location whilst the Peak District National Park has a defined boundary. For many many years I thought they were one and the same.
Every day’s a school day, so felt like sharing for other people as ignorant as I 🙂Posted 5 years agoedlongMember
I imagine many, if not most national parks are similar to this, someone has to draw a boundary, and there will be competing interest / lobbying groups involved, for instance Nidderdale, which is undoubtedly within the Yorkshire Dales, but not the national park, was left outside at the prompting of the water corporation who wanted less restriction on reservoirs etc.Posted 5 years ago
