 Dog Fouling around Langsett Reservoir

Dog fouling is a persistent problem in the Langsett area and a constant battle for the Peak District National Park Rangers and local volunteers that try to keep the area clean and tidy.

If you are out walking in this beautiful area please pick up after your dog and put it in one of the bins in the Langsett Barn car park or the bin in the Flouch Yorkshire Water car park.  Alternatively bag it and take it home with you if you do not find a bin.

One of the most unsightly things is when people hang their dog foul bags in trees or on gate posts!  

Barnsley Council dog wardens are currently patrolling the Langsett reservoir area that is within their remit and will issue fixed penalty fines to those found offending. They will also advise dog walkers of the legislation.

Superfast Broadband


Superfast broadband is the next generation of broadband − providing a faster and more reliable service.

It uses fibre optic technology to deliver speeds which can top 80Mbps.

The Superfast South Yorkshire project is a joint project with South Yorkshire Local Authorities to bring superfast broadband to rural areas across the region. 

Engineers from BT Openreach are currently working hard to survey the area to ensure the most efficient roll out of superfast broadband across South Yorkshire.

First moorland-themed apps launched – and they are free to download

Discovering more about the beautiful moorland landscape, its wildlife and vegetation is now much easier thanks to four new free smartphone apps.

The apps are the first moorland-themed identification guides that have been created to help visitors learn about the uniqueness, beauty and importance of the Peak District National Park and South Pennine moors.

The free apps provide a useful field guide looking at plants, moss, wildlife and some of the landscape features found on moorland.

Available to download on iOS and Android, on smartphones and tablets, or even as a printable pdf, the new apps have been created as part of the Moors for the Future
Partnership’s MoorLIFE project.

MoorMOSS, MoorPLANTS, MoorSIGHTS and MoorWILD have been designed with the Peak District and South Pennines in mind, but will be useful on moorlands across the UK.

MoorLIFE Project Manager Laura King said: “We produced the apps so that people can learn more about the wonderful landscapes that we have worked on to restore to their
former glory.
Thanks to the EU funding we’ve completed conservation works to protect 2,500 hectares of moorland, that will increase the numbers of plants, and sphagnum mosses that you’ll be able to spot out on the moors. And we hope that you’ll have more chances to see more wildlife as our works improve these vital habitats.”

These handy new apps, which will work without a phone signal, help you identify and learn about things you come across on the moors.

MoorMOSS - looks at Sphagnum mosses found in the Peak District and South Pennines. It focuses on the various species of moss, lichen and liverwort you are most likely to see.

MoorPLANTS – a guide to ferns, flowering herbs, shrubs, trees and grasses. The app provides text descriptions and photo galleries to help you identify the interesting plants which are found in the area.

MoorSIGHTS - gives you a feel for some of the types of landscape features you are likely to encounter on a walk across the moors. With text that covers key features and a photo gallery for each entry, some of the mysteries and gems of these moors will be explained.

MoorWILD - focuses on the birds, insects, mammals and reptiles found on the moors. With the text and photographs provided you will soon be putting names to the animals that make our moors unique.
