The hinterland of Millom was once a thriving site of the iron industry. When the industry closed it left both problems and opportunities. Wildlife took to the many sites and the area is rich in flora and fauna. We shall explore the wildlife of these sites formerly regarded as derelict.
We shall also look at the national park from outside the boundary and consider how we came to have national parks and designated landscapes. The writings of Millom poet Norman Nicholson will also feature during the day.
