We have today taken the difficult decision to suspend our work party schedule for March, April, May and June. We will be reviewing the situation in July but in light of government recommendations in respect of Covid-19, the safety of our staff and the public must be our priority.

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. The sessions are also offered as accredited Continuous Professional Development training through the Mountain Training Association.

Why Landscape Matters
Landscape is our support system without which we could not exist. Everyone depends on landscape for food, water, fuel and clean air.

A beautiful and diverse landscape with a wealth of wildlife and human history inspires and enriches our lives and provides a ‘natural health service’ for mind and body. But our fragile landscapes are under threat as never before, not least from climate change, and our challenge is to understand, support and enhance them.

“I thought the trainer was excellent. Very knowledgeable about wildlife and explained things in a very clear way. Usually when I go out on the Fells it is about getting from A to B. This day demonstrated that it’s not how many miles you cover but what you take time to look at on the way that is important!”

“Fantastic location, lots of information in a short distance. Great trainer.”

“Excellent, informative, enjoyable.”
