Can you actually do this???? Was just wondering, as i went for a walk round burbridge valley the other day and found a few tent pegs and some cheeky wild fires in the woodland outcrops. Is wild camping in general allowed in the peaks?

In reply to peggalex: Let's just say it's not and people sometime's use tent pegs to hold down picnic blankets when it's windy.

Of the course you can do it! Out of sight, pitch no earlier than sunset, leave by sunrise, and leave no trace.

Wild camping isn't 'allowed' without owners permission anywhere in England , or Wales, I think, except Dartmoor. What is tolerated, or what you can get away with, is another matter.

If you could tell they had been wild camping then they haven't done it properly! leave no trace...

Irrespective of whether you chose to wild camp, fires are a no-no
In reply to peggalex: It might be worth reading this article on the legalities (or otherwise) of wild camping: http://www.ukhillwalking.com/articles/page.php?id=3791
