Sustainable walking in the Lake District and new Fellranger series with Mark Richards and Gill Haigh

Celebrating eight new guidebooks for walking the Lake District fells

Summary

With iconic lakes and mountains, the Lake District National Park is one of the UK's most popular tourist destinations and attracts millions of visitors every year. In this episode of highlights from our Cicerone Live event, Cicerone author Mark Richards and Managing Director of Cumbria Tourism Gill Haigh join us to celebrate the new Walking the Lake District Fells ‘Fellranger’ series and discuss sustainable walking in the Lake District. By offering several routes for each Lake District fell and identifying 'fell-friendly routes', the Fellranger series aims to spread footfall across the Cumbrian hills and support the work of charities like Fix the Fells. Mark and Gill offer plenty of expert advice about how tourists can be more sustainable when visiting the Lake District this year, and how to find quieter places to explore in Cumbria. In this episode, Amy also chats to in-house editor Natalie Simpson about her work over the past four years creating the eight new Fellranger guidebooks.


Discover more about all eight Walking the Lake District Fells guidebooks and explore the online resources for the series on the Cicerone website: www.cicerone.co.uk/fellranger. Offering multiple routes for 230 different fells, each guidebook focuses on a particular Lake District valley: Borrowdale, Buttermere, Coniston, Keswick, Langdale, Mardale and the Far East, Patterdale, and Wasdale.
