The Lake District National Park Authority is offering the chance for those who would like to become park rangers to join an 18-month training programme.

It has two full-time posts available, at Ambleside and Threlkeld. Recruits would work towards a Level 2 diploma in environmental conservation.

Those who love to put on their walking boots and get into the fells might wish to consider this, as part of the duties involves conservation of paths, as well as fences, drystone walls and the general environment.

"A key aspect of the role will be to support and carry out work to maintain and improve our public rights of way network," noted the authority's human resources officer Katie Eastham.

The ranger roles are not the only ones national park bosses are seeking people to fill.

Last week, it made an appeal for more people to volunteer to help raise funds for the Fix the Fells charity, which helps repair and maintain footpaths.
