Hundreds of volunteers have been out on the Borrowdale fells in the Lake District, helping to protect some of our best loved landscapes.
Their aim was to restore paths, woodland and dry stone walls, conserving the countryside and learning new skills into the bargain.
Fiona Marley Paterson joined them:
The Fell Care Days are organised by the Friends’ Flora of the Fells project, in partnership with the National Trust, and the Lake District National Park Authority.
This year, Borrowdale Fell Care Day is being supported by the mountaineer Alan Hinkes, OBE, the first Briton to climb all 14 of the world’s highest mountains over 8000 metres.
A second Fell Care Day of conservation work will focus on woodland in Grange over Sands on Wednesday 13th November, run in partnership with the Morecambe Bay Limestones and Wetlands Nature Improvement Area Project.
