Winter weather line service preserved

Those who like to go walking in the Lake District in the winter months may be delighted to learn the winter weather line has been saved.

A mixture of campaigning for funds, new sponsorship and careful management of resources has enabled the national park authority to ensure the service will be in place over the coming months.

It means that from December 3rd, each and every day will see one of two fell top assessors climbing Helvellyn to report on conditions there, with the service continuing until April.

This means those who head for the hills with their crampons and thermal gloves will know what to expect, noted park management team leader Chris Tomlin.

He said they will be "safe in the knowledge that the vital information the fell top assessors collect helps provide a much fuller and more complete picture of what's happening up on the high Lake District mountains".

Helvellyn is one of four mountains in the Lake District over 3,000 ft in height, the others being Scafell Pike, Scafell and Skiddaw.
