Wasdale Visitor Management Project
Wasdale is a very special place. This beautiful valley in the western Lake District has been voted Britain’s Favourite View and is a popular destination for over 250,000 visitors a year.
Why do we need the project?
Formalising and improving car parking at the head of the valley is also a current challenge, this is likely to be a long and complex process, so please bear with us.
We need to ensure that Wasdale is a special place to live, work and visit long into the future, and establishing appropriate visitor facilities and information is crucial to this – look out for our rangers working around the valley to improve our paths and signage, and feel free to ask questions!
Over the past two years we have worked hard in Wasdale, addressing traffic management issues, litter, Three Peaks Challenge impacts and visitor engagement. Building on the improvements at Lake Head car park, over the next twelve months we will be progressing plans to replace our temporary toilets with permanent facilities.
