About the event

Meet in Armboth carpark on the side of Thirlmere Reservoir. OS Grid ref NY 30540 17217. Walking time to site is approx. 1 hour to about 515m elevation (total 2.5km each way).

Remote site includes a 2-mile hill walk onto moorlands at 500m altitude.

Our peatland conservation days are a great chance for keen fell walkers to have a day out, see some conservation projects first hand, plus spend a few hours doing your bit to help us with our work. All attendees must be fit enough to spend a day walking in the fells safely, and not mind getting muddy. These are remote sites and will have no indoor facilities. 

Booking is essential for these events, as they may get cancelled at short notice due to weather or if no-one books on.

All conservation days will be conducted in a safe and socially distanced manner.  Please ensure you bring hand sanitiser along and not share lunches and equipment.  We would also ask that people follow government guidance and not attend if you have any Covid-19 symptoms or are required to self-isolate. Thank you.

For all events ensure that you bring a packed lunch, waterproof walking boots/ wellingtons and appropriate warm waterproof outdoor clothing, ideally with some spare clothes.
