Those who love to go walking
with their rucksacks
have been advised some paths in the Lake District's Grizedale Forest will be closed when a rally cars event takes place later this month.
The Grizedale Stages Rally will see the vehicles hurtling through the forest on November 26th and 27th, with countryside access adviser Nick Thorne telling Grough the closures are unavoidable.
"We really have no option but to put public safety first. It would present a serious risk if people were to carry on using the rights of way during the rally."
Keen walkers may wish to use the weekend to visit another forested area of the Lakes, such as Whinlatter near Keswick or the Ennerdale Forest, which are both owned by the Forestry Commission.
The route sees cars leave Coniston village at 18:30 GMT on November 26th, with the last competitor finishing at about 15:30 GMT on November 27th.
