Welcome to  Ennerdale 

Lying on the north western edge of the Lake District National Park in Cumbria, the Ennerdale valley is home to some of England’s most vibrant natural environments and one of the longest running ecological restoration projects in the UK. The Wild Ennerdale Partnership is allowing the landscape to evolve naturally with reducing human intervention and invites you to explore this unique valley and experience its special sense of wildness.

Spirit of Place

Through a number of events in 2016 and 2017 we explored the valley's "Spirit of Place" led by our National Trust partners and have produced this ebook to share our experiences. The book can also be purchased from the Gather in Ennerdale Bridge.
