National Parks on our doorstep – more than ever?

Filed under Uncategorized

We are lucky in Kendal to have easy access to two National Parks – the Lake District National Park, the boundary of which likes just a mile or so out of town, and the Yorkshire Dales National Park which actually extends into Cumbria at Sedbergh, a few miles away.  It might sound odd that part of the Yorkshire Dales lies in Cumbria but this is simply down to changes in county boundaries; all of the Yorkshire Dales lies in ‘old Yorkshire’.

However, proposals by Natural England are considering extending the Yorkshire Dales boundary further into Cumbria, as well as into Lancashire.  I don’t suppose the Yorkshire Dales encroaching into Lancashire will go down with many residents from both counties and The Telegraph is describing it – somewhat over-dramatically – as a new War of the Roses.  Still, it’s certainly causing a stir.

Meanwhile, plans to extend the Lake District National Park affect areas – a little less controversially – to the north-east (Whinfell) and south-west (Brigsteer and Sizergh) of Kendal.
