About

Esk Ghyll - Continuing the use whilst minimising the damage - A free workshop hosted by Friends of the Lake District (FOLD). Esk Ghyll is a challenging ghyll scramble at the head of the Esk Valley and is getting more and more use. With this increased use, the impact of the users upon the environment and the farming community is becoming more and more visible. Through working with a range of outdoor providers, Institute for Outdoor Learning and the Association Heads of Outdoor Education Centres the National Trust has led the development of a Voluntary Users Code of Conduct. This FREE workshop aims to look at the landscape that the ghyll runs through, the challenges to the farming community and the impact to the environment from ghyll scramblers. We will aim to go through the code of conduct and explain the thinking and rationale behind it. Meet location: Red Telephone Box at bottom of Hardknott Pass Parking: On roadside along the valley Start & finish time: 10:30 a.m. - 3 p.m. Walk grade: Moderate Please bring: A picnic lunch & walk kit for all weathers. (Please note there is no indoor backup venue so the walk will go ahead in poor weather unless unreasonable or unsafe to do so. Workshop providers: Clive Stretton – Area Ranger for National Trust for Eskdale and Duddon Gareth field – National Trust Outdoor and Sports Programme Manager
