Wild Peak is a rural housing co-op with land in the Derwent Valley in Derbyshire. Wild Peak Housing Co-op was set up to house people working or volunteering for environmental change and currently our members do both environmental and social change work. We all believe working and living cooperatively is a positive and resilient choice.   We manage our land for conservation along with a some food growing, firewood and hosting events in the summer. We have a feeling of rural isolation whist being only a couple of miles from the town of Belper and a short trip into Derby. As we are next to a local wetland bird reserve we get to share our land with a host of birds and other busy wildlife.   After buying the property in 2012 the co-op has renovated the derelict farm house and out buildings to provide housing for up to 10 adults and dependents. It was a lot of work and we are still aiming to improve with ongoing insulation work and other maintenance tasks. If you would like to know more send us an email, we currently have space for more people and want to build connections with like minded folk.   We are a member of Radical Routes.
