People who like to go walking
around Kendal will not be excluded from the Helm, owners Friends of the Lake District has said.
The charity - which bought the fell overlooking Oxenholme in 2007 with the stated aim of improving access and conservation - has agreed to allow Mountain Rescue search dogs to be trained there, which will take place on Thursday nights and Saturday mornings.
But this will not involve exclusive use of the Helm, as the body stated: "People are still welcome to use Friends of the Lake District land if the search and rescue dogs are there and handlers will gladly talk about what they are doing and why."
The Kendal area offers a number of walks marked on Ordnance Survey maps
, including some crossing the nearby Lake District boundary into the national park.
One of these traces a route across the town's golf course via Kettlewell Crag and continues on to the limestone cliffs of Cunswick Scar.
