I have found many people overlook this part of the blog which is often more interesting than the original post!

My blog nick-name is SIR HUGH. I'm not from the aristocracy - my middle name is Hugh which relates to the list of 282 hills in Scotland compiled by Sir Hugh Munro in 1891. I climbed my last one (Sgurr Mor) on 28th June 2009

Theme park in Langdale - NO!

Monday 4th July 2022.

We all get requests to sign petitions from time to time and I don't always respond, but this one is to protest about something outrageous. When I first read about this proposal to have a theme park in Langdale it seemed so absurd that I thought it was a joke. How anybody could be so crass as to think of such a thing is beyond my comprehension apart from the fact that the Lake District is already at visitor saturation point.

    The Lake District Planning Board and Lake District National Park are a joke, they are already in bed with the developers who share the Brockholes Windermere site with a tree tops adventure 'attraction'.
    What happened to Friends of the Lake District?

  2. This is outrageous Conrad and we will both sign. By the way, I don’t get notifications when you post, so my apologies for late comments.
