About

Friends of the Lake District: The Hidden Landscapes of the Westmorland Dales and Cumbrian Commons The limestone area to the north of the Howgills, which is crossed by the Coast to Coast and other long distance routes, is part of the recent extension to the Yorkshire Dales National Park. This area, known as the Westmorland Dales, is also home to a new partnership that is seeking to reveal its fascinating hidden landscapes. The day will involve a walk from Sunbiggin Tarn on Little Asby Common up onto the top of the limestone scar that overlooks the upper Lune valley. We will explore the rich natural and cultural heritage of the area, and the importance of the common land to its conservation and management. Join us to find more about this unique habitat and how Friends of the Lake District are protecting and managing this special part of the Cumbrian landscape. Terrain and activity: Moderate- Uphill walking on gentle grassy slopes and rocky outcrops Timings: 10:00am - 2:00pm Location: Sunbiggin Tarn, near Orton, GR 675077 All sessions are booked on a first come first served basis. Please bring: a picnic lunch & clothing/footwear for all weathers. (Please note there is no indoor backup venue so the sessions will go ahead in poor weather unless unreasonable or unsafe to do so) Workshop providers: David Evans – Westmorland Dales Hidden Landscapes Development Officer Dr Jan Darrall - Friends of the Lake District Policy Officer
