The Lake District fells are enjoyed by millions of walkers every year but the high level paths can be surprisingly fragile and the sheer number of visitors leave a mark on the landscape.

Fix the Fells needs £500k each year to enable it to carry on its vital work repairing footpaths in a World Heritage Site.

Make your money go further this week and help restore the Lake District’s upland footpaths.

The Big Give Match Fund will DOUBLE your donation so you can DOUBLE your impact for a week of green giving.

Isabel Berry, Fix The Fells Partnership Manager said: “The work of Fix the Fells has never been more vital.

“The combined impacts of the climate crisis, footfall and the fragility of our upland environments means that action to repair and protect fell paths and their surrounds from erosion is critical to ensuring the long term health and resilience of the beautiful Lake District fells for all to enjoy and cherish.

“Your donation will help us deliver essential path work this year and we are immensely grateful for your support.”

Fix the Fells is a partnership programme between the Lake District National Park, National Trust, Natural England, Lake District Foundation, Friends of the Lake District and Cumbria County Council to repair erosion scars which have developed over the years, and to make sure that these scars are prevented in the future.
