About

About Leader's landscape training:

Landscape is our support system without which we could not exist.

Everyone depends on landscape for food, water, fuel and clean air.

A beautiful and diverse landscape with a wealth of wildlife and human history inspires and enriches our lives and provides a ‘natural health service’ for mind and body. But our fragile landscapes are under threat as never before, not least from climate change, and our challenge is to understand, support and enhance them.

Leader’s Landscape Training is aimed at outdoor practitioners to help deepen your understanding of Cumbria’s landscapes and enable you to pass on your new-found knowledge to those with whom you work.

Workshop detail:

The day expedition is a walk which will look at the earliest rocks of the Borrowdale Volcanic Group, possibly some of the underlying Skiddaw Group and the effect of glaciation on the Borrowdale Derwentwater landscape.  It will also incorporate scenic viewpoints, such as Ashness Bridge. Participants should gain some understanding of how the landscape has been shaped by forces in the past.

Meeting point:

Keswick Theatre by the lake car park. Parking fee payable.

Workshop tutor:

This workshop is hosted and organised by Friends of the Lake District (Tutor: Stephen Mott)
