The marker has been missing from Hallam Moors, close to Stanage Edge, since last year when it was removed as the timber structure had rotted.

A larch tree trunk, sourced from the Stanage-North Lees estate, will be hoisted into place on the same spot on April 17 during a ceremony to mark the Peak District National Park’s 65th anniversary.

The park’s planning committee granted permission this week.

A pole has stood on the moors, marking the border of Derbyshire and Yorkshire, for several hundred years.
