    Most of our blog posts deal with the day to day tasks involved in keeping our countryside in tip top condition, occasionally we have some fun and occasionally we even touch some hearts!
    A few weeks ago we took some children from Ennerdale Primary School on a very wet and windy hike up Rannerdale Knotts, on the day we were impressed by the positive attitudes of the children who smiled and laughed all day despite the horrendous conditions, how lovely therefore for us to receive some letters  thanking us for being there with them, definitely worth sharing their thoughts on what was a truly fantastic day






    Thanks kids, let's do it again real soon!

I've worked for the National Trust since 2002 and I moved up to the Lake District to take up a job in Buttermere and Ennerdale in 2008.
I'd always enjoyed fellwalking holidays but what's really struck me since I came to the Lakes are the amazing stories buried beneath the surface of the landscape.
I feel privileged to work alongside our knowledgable rangers. Whenever I go out on the hills with one of them I always learn something about the history, the wildlife, the archaeology, the geology. I think of it like getting beneath the skin - there's this awe-inspiring landscape with this incredible cultural depth beneath it. I'm certainly never bored!
