Orrest Head Access Improvement Project
It would be great if everybody could
see this view from themselves
Orrest Head Donations
The view from Orrest Head is spectacular, but not everyone can get there to enjoy it because the top section of path is too steep and difficult.
We want to create an alternative path to this special viewpoint suitable for people with limited mobility, including people with powered-wheelchairs and families with pushchairs.
We need funding to:
- Restore a section of Victorian carriage drive and create an accessible path to the viewpoint;
- Improve the water drainage and restore the eroded summit landscape;
- Replace the worn-out seating;
- Provide more information about the area and
- Involve local children in a project to create a new logo to waymark the route;
- Provide an all-terrain Lake District Mobility scooter for people to borrow to get to the viewpoint.
Help us to reach our fundraising target of £50,000.
