The Lake District National Park is keen to share the message ‘Cumbria is open’, in support of our communities and businesses following last weekend’s weather. It’s important that people who are thinking of visiting this weekend know that the majority of places are still open and accessible throughout the national park.
We are asking people to check routes in advance and will be sharing information on temporary rights of way closures on our Cumbria floods update page.
Following an initial assessment of areas across the national park, our rangers have started to put some bridge and path closures in place for people’s safety. It is important that people take notice of these signs and cordons and do not cross them.
If you see bridges, paths or tree damage that needs reporting please ring us on 01539 724 555 and we will pass your message onto the relevant member of the Park Management team.
Our tourist information centre at Keswick is now open and officers from Allerdale Borough Council are running a flood information centre in the Moot Hall 10am to 4pm.
Further information is available on our Cumbria floods update page.
