Lakes seeks to cut car use
Bookmark and Share
Those who like to go walking or get out their fishing tackle in the Lake District may be interested in an initiative aimed at lowering the level of traffic congestion in the national park.

Conservation body Nurture Lakeland has established a Sustainable Tourism Forum, which will be holding a seminar on November 11th at a hotel near Windermere to discuss the issue.

This will include members of the public, along with the national park authority, public transport providers and other bodies.

People heading to the national park may note they can get around using trains and buses, such as by heading to Windermere by rail and getting a bus on the route to Ambleside, Grasmere and Keswick.

Although few parts of the national park are accessible by rail, the village of Staveley where Nurture Lakeland is based is one of them, being on the line between Kendal and Windermere.

Visitors may wish to fish in one of the local tarns or walk a route like the Kentmere Horseshoe.

In Keswick, a group exists campaigning for the restoration of the closed railway line to Penrith.
