The deadline for sealed bids to buy a Lake District mountain closed at midday today (2nd July).
Blencathra was put on the market at 1.75 million pounds in May. Its owner Lord Lonsdale did it because he needs to raise nine million pounds to pay an inheritance tax bill.
It prompted a group called "Friends of Blencathra' to set up a campaign to raise enough money to buy it as a community asset.
Kim Inglis spent the day with the group in Threlkeld.
