National Parks 70th Anniversary

Some photos taken at the celebrations that took place on the 22nd March 2019 based at Castleton Youth Hostel.

There was a good showing from the Manchester & Salford group, with a few others from New Mills, Wigan, Sheffield, and the Disabled Ramblers. It was also good to meet up again with Yvonne, Maxwell and others from MOSAIC.
