Wow its been over 10 years since we agreed our first Stewardship Plan for the valley. We are now consulting on our revised Wild Ennerdale Stewardship Plan. The full plan can be found on the Forestry Commission's Consultation hub where you can leave your comments.
Welcome to Ennerdale
Rising abruptly out of the coastal plain of West Cumbria Ennerdale is one of the most remote of Cumbria valleys and has a distinctive character of its own. There is a sense of tranquillity, ruggedness, self-will, wildness, a feeling more of Scotland or Scandinavia. Wild Ennerdale is one of the UK’s largest wildland partnerships.
It is widely recognised for its partnership working, future natural approach and for pioneering innovative ways of upland management which blur boundaries between forestry and farming.
The Wild Ennerdale partnership invites you to explore this unique valley and experience its special sense of wildness.
Wild Ennerdale is excited to have become a member of the European Rewilding Network. The network offers members the opportunity to gain experiences, expertise and resources from other similar projects across Europe. Wild Ennerdale has its own page within the network website along with other UK projects such as Knepp and Trees for Life - Restoring the Caledonian Forest
