Fix the Fells
The spectacular Lake District landscape is a paradise for walkers attracting 10 million visitors each year. But 10 million pairs of booted feet are not without their impact. In fact they leave a significant imprint on the magnificent, yet surprisingly fragile mountain environment. Erosion caused by feet (and rain!) leads to large scars developing in the landscape. Eroded paths are not only unsightly, they also lead to habitat loss, water pollution and damage to rare species in the area. Skilled craftsmen and hundreds of volunteers carry out essential repair work to rebuild and maintain the most badly eroded footpaths. Community engagement and education of those who use the upland fells is also a vital strand of the project to ensure long-term sustainability of uplands promoting access for all. The success of this project relies on donations; please donate whatever you can to help preserve this fragile landscape.
