About

Workshop content:

The British Mountaineering Council’s Mend Our Mountains: Make One Million campaign is a call to action to everyone who values the hills, mountains and landscapes of Britain. It aims to galvanise mass support for things we all use: the paths, bridleways and bridges which underpin our experiences in the great outdoors. Through a year-long appeal they aim to raise £1 million in total for a range of vital projects within the UK’s entire family of 15 National Parks.

Fix the Fells is the upland path restoration programme in the Lake District National Park. Heading up Brown Tongue (which will be a beneficiary of the Mend our Mountains campaign) Richard Fox, Fix the Fells Ranger, will be discussing the impacts outdoor recreation and weather have had on our surprisingly fragile upland landscapes, the whys and wherefores of path repair and maintenance and ways those who use the fells can help keep them fighting fit for the future.

Activity grade: Strenuous

Meeting point: National Trust car park at NY182,075, Wasdale Head.

Time: 10am – 3:30pm

Workshop trainers:

Richard Fox – LDNP Ranger

Carey Davies – BMC Hill Walking Development Officer
