Save Our Lake District (SOLD)

Zip wires, recreational 4x4s and motorbikes, gondolas or poorly considered path surfaces are all symptoms of a wider problem. We now find the Lake District National Park being ridiculed in the press and enough was enough. It is time for action.

Campaign Update 3rd April 2020

All our campaigning activities have been suspended. While the Coronavirus outbreak continues, we appreciate that everyone has more pressing priorities. 

We will continue to keep a watchful eye on any developments within the Lake District and Cumbria, will continue to respond appropriately, updating members and supporters accordingly.  We will also continue to talk to the Lake District National Park Authority and other interested parties about the SOLD campaign and hope to update you in the near future. 

Many people will be missing their visits to the Lake District and Cumbria. We will continue to use our social media channels to provide interesting information and reflections about the area as well as supporting key messages from the Lake District National Park Authority, Cumbria Police and the NHS about how Covid 19 is affecting access to the area. 

Every day that goes by we are missing getting out into our fantastic landscapes. Absence is making the heart grow fonder, and reinforces the benefits we normally enjoy. They will still be here once this is all over, in the meantime we appreciate your support for our work.
