Many of you will have seen David Attenborough’s new series, Wild Isles, which focuses on the stunning wildlife to be found in the British Isles. He also made an impassioned plea for us all to do more to halt the decline in numbers of our native species.
Following on from this programme, our local BBC Look North, broadcasted an item on the work being carried out at the Geltsdale Nature Reserve, managed by the RSPB. They are making a huge difference by “rewilding a remote and ruggedly beautiful corner of the North Pennines”.
By coincidence, this is where our Festival Walk, Cumbria Rocks begins! Join us to explore this little known part of Cumbria and learn more about the quarrying which took place here over the centuries which helped create the landscape we see today.
