Buxton MRT

From their base at Doveholes, just north of Buxton on the A6, Buxton Mountain Rescue Team’s area roughly extends from Kinder Scout in the north down to Dove Dale in the south, from Macclesfield in the west to the climbing edges in the east. However, team members are frequently called to do work all over the Peak District National Park, coming together in combined snatch squads with Kinder MRT to the north, Edale MRT to the east and Derby MRT to the south. They also support other teams bordering these areas in a mutual aid arrangement which is reciprocated on larger incidents in the area.
