Happy Birthday Heidi! Here's to all the long walks to come!
Albert Lockley 12th June 1937 - 8th February 2013. A loving husband, father and grandfather. He was a lover of the Lake District and was never happier than when he was surrounded by its beauty.
In memory of Arthur and Jean Baker who loved the Lakes and spent many happy holidays there.
We especially remember their wonderful Golden Wedding celebration at Derwentwater in 2005.
There was no place where Roy would rather be than wandering the fells with his family. His sense of adventure and fun whether up hill or down dale will be missed by all those who knew him.
We are sponsoring a gate in memory of Paul Clarkson, a loving husband and a doting dad. He loved the Lake District and was a keen fell walker. We relocated to Cumbria in 2014 to have the fells on our doorstep.
He died in June 2016 after a brave and dignified battle against cancer.

In loving memory of Stanley Langford (1914-1996), who shared his passion for the Lake District and Buttermere in particular, with those he loved. This bridge (Sour Milk Ghyll) marks the beginning of the climb to Red Pike where his ashes were scattered by his widow, Margaret and his children.

The bridge between The Boardwalk and Bench, High Dam is dedicated to Tony Wright. Donated by Rachel and Roz Sullivan as a fitting memorial to a man whose life purpose was to help as many as possible. Also for our dogs, Rooney, Dylan, Vasco and Rufus who love(d) High Dam even more than he did. Tony was the dearest friend, helper and mentor to family, friends and community. When you stand here, perchance seeing the river of primroses meandering downhill in springtime, ("Beautiful little chaps" he'd say), bless a man who was a force for good in this world.
David and Karen Lee are moving to Penrith to live near their beloved Lake District. Their friends at St Mark's church, Basingstoke have donated £200 to the Ullswater Way Project in celebration of their long friendship and fellowship and wish them much joy and happiness in the future.
