The Friends of the Lake District want people to join them to give some care and attention to this lovely area with their Duddon Fell Care Day.
Dunnerdale, the valley carved by the River Duddon, which runs from the Hardknott/Wrynose Pass road through Seathwaite and Ulpha down to Broughton in Furness is a shhhh-don't-tell-everyone-about-it kind of place; crystal streams, magical woodlands, spectacular fells. But just like the more well-known and popular spots, it needs help to keep it so special. read more ...
Thirlmere has taken a bit of a bruising this year so the Friends of the Lake District want people to join them to give a bit of time and care back to this special place at their Thirlmere Fell Care Day.
Thirlmere has taken a bit of a bruising this year, both from the threat of major development which would have substantially altered its tranquil character, to the toppling of many trees from storms over on the western shore which is still restricting access. read more ...

Last Sunday Langdale MRT and Patterdale MRT has to rescue four people trying to find The Priest's Hole. This is not the first such incident in recent times.
The Priest's Hole is a cave on the face of Dove Crag which has grown in popularity following the BBC's Secret Britain programme in 2016 and the programme has increased the number of people attempting to spend the night there. read more ...
Parking at Seathwaite is difficult all year around but now, in the height of the season, it's a real problem.
If you've ever visited Seathwaite to walk up Great Gable or Scafell Pike then you will already be aware that there are parking issues up there. Here's the view when the Google Streetview car visited in April 2010 and even on an overcast Spring day where it had clearly rained earlier almost all the available parking was in use.read more ...
