Four teams of National Trust rangers work in all weathers on Fix the Fells and are highly skilled. The practical work is also supported by the Lake District National Park Authority with a ranger in the north and through the volunteer lengthsmen scheme.
Since the early 1980s, the teams have evolved into a highly skilled workforce. To build a sustainable path and recreate a natural landscape, team members must be part craftsperson and part artist. Teams often visit other areas where similar work is undertaken and adapt ideas to the Lake District environment. They also share their skills with colleagues from other areas who wish to learn more about our work.
You can get an insight in to the working life of our ranger teams from the Ranger News posts they write.
