Lake District reveals paths progress
Bookmark and Share
Those who like to grab a trekking pole and go walking in the Lake District have been advised of how much progress has been made on repairing its paths and bridleways since the devastating floods of 12 months ago.

So far, 41 paths, 86 bridleways, 75 bridges and 37 path surfaces have had work carried out on them as part of a £1.7 million project.

In all, 84 paths will be repaired, with 253 bridges mended or replaced and 61 paths given new stiles or gates.

Assessing the progress, national park authority paths for the public co-ordinator Dylan Jackman remarked: "It's amazing the transformation that has already occurred just a year after the floods, now this additional work will bring about even more dramatic improvements."

Popular routes on which work has finished include the Garburn Pass bridleway, which rises out of the Kentmere valley.

Other popular walking routes in the area include the Nan Bield pass, which connects Kentmere with Mardale Head, passing by the tarn of Small Water.
