Dorchester House are Associate Members of The Partnership and are busy fundraising to help support Heritage Lottery Upload Footpath Repair on the route between Millbeck and Carlside on the slopes of Skiddaw close to Keswick.
Every £1 raised to support these footpaths will draw down an extra £2 from the Heritage Lottery Fund.
The lower section will involve aligning the path onto the contours of the fellside, reducing its width and encouraging the re-growth of vegetation.
The upper section will involve stabilising the bank on the upper side of the path. Coir netting, which is an organic mix of heather brash, will be applied to the fellside here to encourage vegetation re-growth.
This project is coordinated by the Lake District Tourism and Conservation Partnership, a non-profit distributing organisation whose aim is to raise funds from visitors and tourism businesses to maintain and enhancement the Lake District.
