    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!

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.
