Let’s celebrate 60 years of National Parks

Friday, December 11, 2009

Sheffield Heeley MP Meg Munn is celebrating the 60th anniversary of the passage of the National Parks and Access to the Countryside Act 1949. This Act laid the foundations for the creation of 14 National Parks, 49 Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONBs), 294 National Nature Reserves and 2,900 miles of National Trails.

 

Meg commented:

 

“The 1949 Act led to the protection of many beautiful landscapes across England and Wales. It was followed by the ‘right to roam’, The Countryside and Rights of Way Act 2000 which gave us access to ‘open country’, such as mountains, moors, down lands and registered common lands.

 

We have so many areas of breathtaking beauty to chose from; Cornwall and Devon, Shropshire, Mid-Wales, Northumberland. Also areas much closer, the Peak District National Park, North York Moors, and of course the Yorkshire Dales.

 

I hope the 60th anniversary will encourage more people to get out and enjoy the precious countryside.”
