The weekend’s severe weather has had a significant impact on Cumbria and our thoughts are with all communities affected.
The Lake District National Park is part of a countywide flood recovery programme and we are currently helping to assess the impact on our communities.
We will be working with partner organisations to set about tackling, what is certain to be, a lengthy and sustained recovery to restore our National Park.
Our rangers are proactively responding to and assessing damage to countryside access, this includes public paths, bridges and gates along those routes. If you see any damage along these routes please report it to our area ranger teams: www.lakedistrict.gov.uk/aboutus/staff/rangersUntil further notice our tourist information centres at Keswick, Ullswater and Bowness will remain closed, along with Coniston Boating Centre. Brockhole is currently open.
