Hi, I spent my childhood living in the Lake district, exploring the rivers and mountains as I grew up. I recently returned to the area after having traveled and lived in other parts of the UK. It is great to be back walking the Lakes with a pick and shovel repairing and maintaining the upland footpaths.
The National Trust is Europe's largest conservation charity. In the Lake District, we look after a
quarter of the National Park, 125 mountains, 24 lakes, 59 listed buildings, 14 holiday cottages, 3
campsites and 90 tenanted farms. We welcome 19 million visitors throughout the year, opening the
Lakes up for ever, for everyone - Four seasons, One Lake District.
