    This landslide occurred at the top of Burtness Wood back in June 2011. This landslide caused a fair bit of damage to the landscape. The picture shows how the landslide tore its way down the hill side. It then ploughed through the boundary fence of Burtness Wood, taking the fence as one of its victims. The landslide carried on down through the wood, taking everything down that got in its way. Fixing the damage is one of the upcoming projects in our busy work programme.

As a ranger I work mainly in the valleys of the northern part of the Lake District and I look after the human part of the landscape; things like walls, hedges and the like. I've been doing this for a very long time, driven by an extraordinary passion for the landscape of Lakeland(the finest corner of England) and Borrowdale in particular (the finest corner of the Lakes). I'm really fascinated by history in the landscape, the sense of human roots in this boney land. I've also got a bit of an obsession with cartography...
