Inspiring people to care for the Lake District

We fund conservation, environmental and cultural heritage projects in the Lake District

Support our current campaign

The Ullswater Way Fund

The Lake District Foundation is aiming to raise £15,000 for vital repair work on the Ullswater Way, around England’s second largest lake. Walking the Ullswater Way is a challenge. Just like taking care of its surrounding footpaths. We need your help to carry out urgent maintenance work to reduce the impact of the busy summer season ahead.
