About

Workshop content:

Glenridding Common rising to the summit of Helvellyn is an iconic location for many in the British uplands. It is visited by tens of thousands of people annually; it is part of two local farm enterprises and is one of a few strongholds in England for its Arctic alpine flora and other important species.

The balance between recreation, farming and conservation can be a challenge, especially in hostile upland environments, but that is the focus and aim of the John Muir Trust who have a management lease on the land.

Cultural, recreational and environmental issues will be discussed on a walk from Glenridding across the common to Red Tarn.

Activity grade: Strenuous, steep slopes, rough ground

Meeting point: Glenrdding, LDNP car park

Time: 10am – 4:00pm

Workshop trainers:

Pete Barron John Muir Trust
