Ethel Haythornthwaite founded the CPRE country side charity and led the way for the Peak District becoming Britain’s first National Park in 1951
The “Ethels” are 95 Peak District hilltops over 400m above sea level and significant lower prominent hills in Derbyshire and Staffordshire. Walkers are able to tick off hilltops that they reach or ‘bag’ on an App called Ethel Ready.
