IT'S not just the uniforms that have changed in the 60 years since the Peak National Park introduced its Ranger service.

This Easter, the 60th anniversary of the service will be celebrated where it all started – in Edale – with walks, veteran rangers in 1950s gear and a display of memorabilia.

A family walk starting at Edale Visitor Centre on Friday at 11am will be guided by retired Edale ranger Gordon Miller, volunteer ranger for more than 50 years Ian Milne, and area ranger Sheila McHale.

They will follow the original path of the first rangers, who were then known as wardens, up to Grindsbrook Meadows..
