The Lake District's Fix the Fells has won this year’s Park Protector Award

15th July 2022

A project responsible for looking after and repairing vital paths in the Lake District National Park has won a prestigious award.

Fix the Fells has won this year’s Park Protector Award in recognition of its ongoing work to protect the Cumbrian landscape.

The award, run by Campaign for National Parks and sponsored by WWF-UK, recognises and rewards the efforts that go into protecting and improving National Parks in England and Wales. The winners received their awards at a ceremony in the Houses of Parliament this week attended by MPs and Lords, National Park Authority chief executives and leading civil servants.

For over 20 years, a team of skilled rangers and volunteers from the National Trust and Lake District National Park Authority have been repairing mountain paths, reversing the trend of erosion damage and restoring habitats. Rain or shine, they carry out work on many of the much-loved routes across the UNESCO World Heritage Site, including Scafell Pike, Helvellyn, Cumbria Way and the Coast-to-Coast path.
