Woodhead MRT

Woodhead Mountain Rescue Team took shape in the early 1970s, with the amalgamation of Huddersfield Scout MRT, Stocksbridge Barugh Rovers and Sheffield Scout MRT, three teams that had been formed after the 1964 Four Inns fatalities. The team primarily covers the north eastern area of the Peak District, but can be called to assist in any area of the Peak – especially during a major incident.

To find out more about the team, go to or find them on Facebook.
