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:

Tranquillity is one of many components that come together to create the overall character of a landscape, and it is something that many visitors to the Lake District and Cumbria come to enjoy but it is often misunderstood or not fully understood even by those tasked with protecting it.

In this session, Prof. Denise Hewlett of the University of Winchester’s Tranquillity Project along with our Policy Officer Kate Willshaw and Planning Officer Lorayne Wall will guide you on an exploration of tranquillity using the landscapes of our land at High Borrowdale and The Helm to help us consider questions such as What is tranquillity?, Why is it important? How do we experience it? And how do we take tranquillity into account in decisions that affect the landscape?

Meeting point:

High Borrowdale  - Layby at Huck’s Bridge, A6 north of Kendal SD 553 038

This workshop is organised by Friends of the Lake District.
