The Peak District National Park has installed five new twin charging points, funded by BMW UK through its Recharge in Nature partnership with National Parks UK.

The new EV chargers are located at Millers Dale Station, Parsley Hay Bike Hire Centre & Car Park and the Moorland Visitor Centre at Edale.

Millers Dale Station and Parsley Hay chargers will be available to the public, and those at Edale will serve guests of the Fieldhead Campsite at the Moorland Visitor Centre.

Each EV charging point can charge two cars simultaneously.

To date, 36 chargers have been installed in National Parks across the UK, with chargers in all 15 of the National Parks set to be installed before the end of the three-year BMW partnership.

Emily Fox, interim head of resources for the Peak District National Park Authority, said, “Being so close to the cities of Manchester, Sheffield, Nottingham and Derby, the Peak District National Park is the most accessible of the UK’s National Parks and we’re so pleased to be able to take this further through the Recharge in Nature partnership with BMW UK.

“The new EV chargers mean those who live and work in the Peak District, as well as the 13 million visitors we welcome every year, have lower emission travel options, helping protect our National Park now and for future generations.”

Graham Biggs, Corporate Communications Director, BMW UK, said, “The installation of these new EV chargers in the Peak District means visitors and those living or working in the National Park can now use their electric cars with greater confidence.

“By increasing the EV charging capacity of the area, it’s helping to reduce emissions and noise pollution in this beautiful landscape.”
