Paul is a co-founder of WalkLakes. His parents were cub and scout leaders so he's been hiking since he could walk. Having a mathematical mind maps hold a particular fascination for him and as well as developing this site he wrote our mapping application. He's also a keen photographer and has now deserted his SLR for a Sony α7II compact system camera and an ever increasing collection of lenses.
The saga of the re-surfacing of the Keswick to Threlkeld railway path came to a head last night when Keswick Town Council passed a motion of no confidence in the Lake District National Park Authority over its decision to resurface the path.
We were alerted by one of our users that the National Park Authority seem intent on selling off 74.31 acres of mixed woodland and amenity land between Grasmere and Ambleside, in the heart of the Lake District.
We were contacted last week by someone who had used our Cumbria Way guide and found that the way had been moved. We've been researching why.
