An attack on the beauty and tranquillity of one the loveliest places in this World Heritage Site

U5015 Borwick Lodge -High Arnside (Tarn Hows)

 

'This track skirts Tarn Hows in the Lake District. It is heavily used by walkers but no longer by horse-riders because it is too dangerous.

 

On the steeper gradients the road structure has been stripped to bedrock, and the flatter sections, which had survived reasonably well are now suffering deformation largely due to the convoys of commercial off-roaders whose noise and pollution are completely alien to this formerly attractive and historic byway.

The photos show how little room there is on this lane - too little room for both walkers and off-road vehicles.

National Parks are the lungs of the nation.
