Reflections festival 'was successful'
Bookmark and Share
A festival held in the Lake District between September 16th and 19th to celebrate the work of conservation charity Bassenthwaite Reflections has been declared a success.

Various activities and events were held around Keswick, despite some inclement weather over the period.

One endeavour was to put people on top of all the 40 peaks over 2,000 ft in the area covered by the body.

Those donning walking boots may have enjoyed doing this, with so many to choose from on Ordnance Survey maps of the area.

Speaking about the festival, head of Bassenthwaite Reflections Martin Varley said: "We finish at the end of December and the festival was designed to showcase what has been achieved and say a massive thank you to all who have helped."

A key area of operations has been the improvement of water flowing into Bassenthwaite Lake, which has involved activities such as removing old polluting mineworkings on surrounding mountains.

The highest mountain in the north of the Lake District is Skiddaw, which stands at 3,054 ft.
