Edale Mountain Rescue Team

A rescue service operating in the Peak District
Edale MRT


Due to the large number of outdoor activities carried out within the Peak District, coupled with the high number of visitors/participants, Edale Mountain Rescue Team is one of the busiest mountain rescue teams in the country. Since the beginning of 2000 team members have been involved in over 900 incidents. These incidents have occurred whilst people have been partaking in nearly every outdoor activity possible on dry land or in the air; walking, climbing, fell running, mountain biking, horse riding, trials biking, hand gliding, paragliding, fixed wing gliding and even fishing. We also assist the police in incidents where our skills can be utilised in more rural locations.
