Path Fixing Projects

What we are working on now

Fix the Fells has repaired over 200 paths since it began in 2001 and these cover more than 400 km.  We maintain and monitor nearly 200 more paths, totalling nearly 400 km, and we are surveying another 325 paths.  The number and priorities change over time as some paths erode more quickly and new ones are identified.

Each year a combination of National Trust and Lake District National Park rangers schedule work from these 344 paths. The work plan is then approved by the Partnership Board.

Fixed Path Projects

Over the years, Fix the Fells has had a major impact in reducing erosion scars on the landscape. Here are just some examples of the work we have done.
