To add to the school videos produced as part of the Dark Skies project, we now have one of Sir Martin Holdgate talking about why the area is so special to him. As well as Martin sharing his huge knowledge and passion there is also some fabulous film of the Westmorland Dales itself, a real inspiration for what we are hoping to achieve through Westmorland Dales Landscape Partnership Scheme.
