Meet the Eastern Moors Team

Danny Udall, Eastern Moors Site Manager

My role is to head up the team and coordinate a programme of improvements for wildlife, landscape and for people who enjoy this place as much as I do.

My first encounter with the Eastern Moors was hanging off a rope on Froggatt Edge, a long time ago - the Eastern Moors has changed a lot since then!  When offered the role to oversee the delivery of a new vision for the Eastern Moors, working with wildlife and people, I jumped at the chance, who wouldn’t?


Katherine Clarke, Visitor Experience Manager

My role is all about the people on the Eastern Moors and making sure that we keep a balance between people's enjoyment of this wonderful place, and the reasons why it is so special; the wildlife, cultural history, landscape and so much more!


Alex Bryant, Assistant Warden

I joined the Eastern Moors team in 2013 – working in and looking after my favourite area of the Peak District.

As a climber and general outside person I was familiar with parts of the estate, but I have really enjoyed discovering the more hidden away places through my daily work.

My job is mainly assisting the senior warden in maintaining the estate and delivering practical projects but can cover an eclectic range of subjects - from shortening gates to counting fox poo! I’m certainly learning a lot every day.


Bryony Thomson, Community Involvement Ranger

My formative years were spent hiking and wildlife spotting in the valleys and woodlands of Kent. I'm blown away by the scale and beauty of the Eastern Moors and looking forward to discovering this special area. I'm passionate about involving people with the natural world so my job is to help people to responsibly explore, engage with and enjoy all the Eastern Moors has to offer.



John Mead, Warden

As a Warden on the Eastern Moors, my role is to carry out habitat management work, work with volunteers and assist with wildlife monitoring. I was previously a volunteer at nearby Longshaw and have had stints as a Ranger with the National Trust in the Lakes, Lyme Park and on Burbage. I'm looking forward to getting to grips with my new role on the Eastern Moors and getting to know this diverse and wonderful landscape better.
