Our Leaders' Landscape Training Sessions are aimed at outdoor practitioners to help deepen their understanding of Cumbria’s landscapes and enable them to pass on their new-found knowledge to those with whom they work. 

You don't have to be a Mountain leader to book a place on this activity but priority will be given to Mountain leaders if the event is oversubscribed. 

Understanding Tranquillity
Date: 9th August 2024  
Time: 9 am – 1 pm
Session content: Tranquillity is one of many components that come together to create the overall character of a landscape, and it is something that many visitors to the Lake District and Cumbria come to enjoy but it is often misunderstood or not fully understood even by those tasked with protecting it. 
In this session, our Planning Officer Lorayne Wall and Policy Officer Kate Willshaw will guide you on an exploration of tranquillity using the landscape of our land at The Helm to help us consider questions such as What is tranquillity?, Why is it important? How do we experience it? How do we protect tranquillity? and how should we take tranquillity into account in decisions that affect the landscape?  
Leaders:  Lorayne Wall – Planning Officer - Friends of the Lake District
Location:  Friends of the Lake District - owned land at The Helm, near Kendal
