Mending The Lake District

We spent a great day last month helping to rebuild a flight of stairs through a wood just behind the Blencathra Centre near Keswick

f.o.l.d steps

The work was a small part of a fell maintainence day organised by Friends of the Lake District – who run several similar events throughout the year.  Teams of volunteers are given tasks to do that help maintain and preserve the special places we at use for our self guided holidays and adventure activities, in return for tea and cake, as well the satisfaction of “giving something back”.

Check them out at and maybe we ll see you at the next on :-)
