The sticker gives a year's free parking for Stanage Edge's car parks

Stuck for a stocking filler for your favourite cragrat?

How about a Stick up for Stanage sticker that will give them a year’s free parking at one of the Peak District’s most popular climbing venues?

The £15 stickers give the donor a double festive warm glow with the knowledge you’re also helping to conserve the area in the Peak District national park.

The scheme has been set up to help pay for access improvements, bird conservation, woodland management works and visitor information at Stanage-North Lees, near Hathersage.

Rebekah Newman, Stanage-North Lees property manager, said: “These stickers make a perfect present for anyone who loves Stanage. We know people are keen to help care for and protect the special landscape and this is a way for them to show their support.”

In return for a contribution of £15, people will receive a sticker to display in their car for 12 months’ free parking at Stanage car parks, and they will be entitled to a discount at the Stanage-North Lees campsite.

Owned by the Peak District National Park, the 542ha (1,339-acre) property is only eight miles from Sheffield city centre, yet includes the gritstone cliffs of Stanage Edge and is home to ring ouzel – the mountain blackbird – and internationally important moorland.

As well as footpaths and access land, Stanage has 1,700 recognised climbing and bouldering routes as well as classic cycling routes.

Stickers are available from Stanage-North Lees campsite, the Outside shop in Hathersage and all the Sheffield Climbing Walls.

You can also order online via the Peak District website or on the British Mountaineering Council site.
