Langdale's Conservation Projects in the Lake District

As part of our commitment to protect the Lake District landscape an optional donation of £2.00 will be added to you bill which goes to local environment and conservation projects. This can be removed at check in.

As part of our commitment to conserving the local landscape we support the following projects:

'Our man at the Top' - Footpath Repair by Langdale

Langdale has raised over £177,710 to regenerate footpaths in the Langdale Valley.

The ‘Fix the Fells’ project is a £5 million scheme to repair erosion scars which have developed over the years, and to make sure that these scars are prevented in the future. The Lake District is visited by millions of visitors every year, and every day you will see walkers enjoying the beauty of the fells. These high level paths are surprisingly fragile, however, and the sheer number of visitors leaves a mark on the landscape.

Over time, grass is compacted by feet, and worn away. Because of the steepness of the hills, what then happens is our traditional Lakeland weather (rain!) starts to wash the soil away, down into the bottom of the valleys. This extra soil washes into the streams, and ends up in lakes where the situation causes havoc for fish and other species.

The work being done aims to prevent this loss of grass and soil by designing and creating paths that reduce the amount of wear and tear on the surrounding landscape. On the steeper slopes, you’ll see ‘pitching’ where stone has been laid, and on less steep slopes paths have been created with the aid of diggers.
