The Lake District is a truly inspirational place with breathtaking scenery wherever you turn… and it has been my playground all my life.
I am the upland ranger in North West lakes, covering Borrowdale, Buttermere, and Ennerdale. I am responsible for supervising volunteer groups, repairing and maintaining over thirty six paths and also helping in the valley (walling, hedging, fencing etc). “How lucky you are” is a very regular comment as walkers pass our work sites. It does not always feel that way though, when you are wet through and battered by the winds, it feels like hard work! Yet still, I am blessed to work in such a beautiful place helping to conserve the local heritage I love.
