Those putting on men's outdoor clothing
or women's outdoor clothing
for a day on the hills may be interested to know that the National Trust has a new man in charge of repairing footpaths in upland areas of England and Wales.
Sam Stalker is to take over as head of the trust's upland footpath team from Rob Clarke, who has been in the post for four years, Grough reports.
Mr Stalker, who recently completed a degree in conservation management at Edinburgh University, said: "I am looking forward to taking on the role of Man at the Top and continuing to spread the word about the brilliant work carried out by the Fix the Fells project."
Fix the Fells is an ongoing quest to ensure that paths in the Lake District are kept in good order, with volunteers in action across the national park.
Last week, the project carried out work to reverse the effects of erosion on an area of fellside above Braithwaite near Keswick.
