Wild Ennerdale is not about abandoning the valley but about managing the valley at a lower level of intervention, working with the natural processes and the special qualities of the valley.

The Partnership is focused on two principal activities

  • reducing and removing features and activities that detract from the sense of wildness and inhibit natural processes.
  • ensuring that natural processes are operating at their most functional and introducing missing natural features where they are not represented already.

Our management is guided by our Stewardship Plan which we are currently reviewing.
