Heather Devey, RSPB Haweswater
RSPB Haweswater encompasses 30 square kilometres of mixed upland habitats on the eastern edge of the Lake District National Park. The RSPB work in partnership with United Utilities to manage the site for people, water and wildlife, with active farms running alongside thriving upland wildlife. In 2019 a new initiative, ‘Wild Haweswater’ was launched to showcase the wildlife, habitat restoration, and events on site, engaging a wider audience with the natural heritage of the area.

This poster links to Proposal 7 of the Landscape Review ~ a stronger mission to connect all people with our national landscapes; it provides an overview of the most (top 30%) deprived rural and urban areas in England and their populations that are within 10 Miles of our National Parks & Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

Graham Watson, John Muir Trust
The John Muir Trust is dedicated to the protection and enhancement of wild land for wildlife, landscape and people through management, education and advocacy.
Our poster shows the John Muir Award which encourages people to enjoy, connect with, care and take action for nature. Since 1996 it has reached over 400,000 people, 25% from an ‘inclusion’ background. It is used by a diverse range of partners in all 15 National Parks (and some AONBs) with formal agreements in 3 Parks. We describe the national picture with links to our activity in National Parks, and examples from the Lake District and Shropshire Hills AONB.
Graham Watson, John Muir Award Manager for Cumbria, will be available to answer questions.
Ewan Allinson, Northern Heartlands
Hefted to Hill – A Northern Heartlands project.
Hefted to Hill was a flagship project for the Northern Heartlands Great Place Scheme in the rural western half of Co. Durham. https://northernheartlands.org/ culminating in an exhibition in 2019.
This scheme was our independent response to an innovative pilot in cultural policy announced in 2016, seeking to use the arts bodies and artists in an area to drive local engagement with policy issues affecting those places. Hefted to Hill was a project led by artist Ewan Allinson, co-founder of Northern Heartlands, seeking to reveal the depth of knowledge and expertise held by farmers that policy-makers ignore to the detriment of that policy-making. To hear Ewan’s conversations with farmers go to https://northernheartlands.org/project/hefted-to-hill-the-exhibition/
Ewan is now pursuing these themes as a PhD at the University of Dundee.

Brenda Fishwick, Lake District Green Lanes Alliance
The Lake District Green Lanes Alliance is for everyone who wants to protect the historic green lanes of the Lake District for quiet, non-motorised recreation and farming access.
Green lanes are unsealed and have no tarmac or concrete coating. They are part of our cultural heritage and many of them date back centuries. Their original purpose was to provide routes for farmers, packhorses or horse-drawn carts. They were never designed with motor vehicles in mind, but current highway laws allow recreational 4 x 4 drivers and motorcyclists to use them.
The LDGLA argues that recreational activities in this national park should be essentially quiet, non-destructive and non-polluting.
This precious national park is for everyone…… but not for everything.
