What's changing at Fell Foot?

Fell Foot is currently undergoing vital conservation and maintenance work. We’re working hard to get the work done quickly so that our visitors can enjoy everything the site has to offer as soon as possible. Here's everything you need to know about what we're doing and how it affects you.

What are we changing?

In addition to the brand new Fell Foot Active Base (read more here), we're restoring the historic boat house complex and arboretum with funding from the Heritage Lottery Fund, improving access to the waterfront, and installing new pathways.

Over the next few years, we're also hoping to build a brand new cafe, re-introduce camping pods, and offer more opportunities to play throughout the park.

Can I lend a hand?

Yes please! There are lots of volunteering opportunities including working on the Oral and Social History Project, leading guided tours, assisting with events and helping the Youth Ranger Team in the outdoors. If you're interested in finding out more please contact Kelley at kelley.sprostonheath@nationaltrust.org.uk or 015395 31273.

Car parking

We will continue to charge for car parking throughout the year, to support the operation and conservation of the site. This enables us to continue looking after Fell Foot, forever, for everyone. Find out more about National Trust car parking.
