About Fix the Fells upland path repairsDo your bit to help look after the iconic Lake District fells and find out just how much work goes into maintaining the paths under your feet.
A fantastic opportunity to learn about the work the Fix the Fells partnership does to look after our upland paths and landscapes. Working alongside the National Trust’s own teams you’ll tackle the strenuous but extremely rewarding task of path building and repair, learning the sort of skills only a select few people know. You’ll also spend a day with the Fix the Fells lengthsmen, discovering the essential part this dedicated group of volunteers plays in the project. Please come prepared for a full day’s walking on one day and up to an hour and a half at the start and end of each of the others. Also, be ready for some decidedly unpredictable weather …
