Countryside classrooms where youngsters can learn more about the Peak District are now open for business in the Hope Valley.

A new indoor classroom and an outdoor learning area in woodland have been created by Hope Construction Materials, with input from park officers.

The location gives pupils easy access to the park while allowing them to get closer to nature.

Park chief executive Jim Dixon said: “This is a fantastic facility that will help more young people experience the wonder of nature.”
