Update 23 March:
Our fell top assessors have finished their season early.
In this extraordinarily challenging time, we ask everyone to heed the advice and guidance from Public Health England and Cumbria Police which advises everyone to avoid all but essential travel and to be following good social distancing practices in all aspects of their lives.
Cumbria and the Lake District are not immune to the unprecedented pressures facing our public services, including the NHS and Mountain Rescue, and we all have a responsibility to help those on the frontline as much as possible. Now is not the time for tourism.
Stay at Home. Protect the NHS. Save Lives.
