Lovers of the Three Peaks in the Yorkshire Dales National Park are being asked to vote for conservation work that is in the running for a £30,000 award.

The European Outdoor Conservation Association is offering to fund repairs to a section of the footpath network near Pen y ghent that is in urgent need of attention.

But the scheme will only go ahead if it receives the vital funding it needs – and that will only happen if people go online at from Wednesday and vote for the Yorkshire Three Peaks route. Voting closes on March 23.

Yorkshire Dales Millennium Trust director David Sharrod said: “We believe the Three Peaks Project would be a truly deserving winner.”
