National Trust in Cumbria English Lakes


The National Trust was formed in 1896 by Canon Hardwicke Rawnsley, Vicar of Crosthwaite, Keswick, Miss Octavia Hill and Sir Robert Hunter.

It is now responsible for the conservation and management of about one quarter of the Lake District National Park. The total of about 50,000 HA in turn is about a quarter of the Trust's entire holding in England and Wales

They control 90 farms, almost all the central fells area, the major valley heads, six of the main lakes and much of their shorelines.
