National Trust in the Lake District & Cumbria

The National Trust’s most important work in Cumbria is the conservation of about one quarter of the Lake District National Park. Almost all the central fell area and the major valley heads are owned or held on lease by the trust, 91 farms, twenty four lakes and tarns, and much of their shoreline are also fully protected. These 123,500 acres are about a quarter of the National Trust’s entire holding.
