Fix the Fells Cicerone supports the ?Fix the Fells? Project as part of The Tourism and Conservation Partnership. Every copy of Great Mountain Days in the Lake District sold increases Cicerone?s support of this valuable scheme helping to protect the area for future generations. The project repairs and maintains Lakeland footpaths. Without maintenance footpaths erode, creating scars on the fells and depositing sediment into the lakes and streams, this is damaging to wildlife and we want to do our bit to prevent it.
