Fix the Fells appeal

Four National Trust Rangers in the Lake District

Our Ranger Team looks after nearly 14,000 hectares of valleys, lakes and fells. The area has a wide range of landscapes and habitats including 25 tenanted farms, around 650 hectares of woodlands, impressive gardens, access to the shores of numerous lakes, historic buildings and remote tarns.

Thousands of you visit every year to enjoy the stunning and unspoilt landscape of the Lakes. Maintaining this landscape is an ongoing job for our rangers as we want to ensure that visitors can continue to enjoy it forever.

Fixing the fells

Dedicated teams of National Trust Rangers have been repairing and maintaining upland footpaths in the Lake District for over 25 years.

Follow the team via the National Trust Fell Rangers blog or their Twitter feed. Details below. 

Can you help us raise £300,000 to save footpaths from erosion in the Lake District?

Two thousand metres of paths need replacing in the next two years at a cost of £160 per metre. With your support, we can keep the Lake District special for years to come.

Check out our great video taken while the Fell Rangers were working up on Helm Crag. It nicely explains how and why we do our upland path work.
