Topic - Landrovers on the Gatesgarth Pass,

Simon Ash - on 07 Oct 2012
Went for a walk today - just up Harter Fell Haweswater as was feeling a bit under the weather. Not only did we have 4 guys on motorbikes trying to get up the pass - which specifically says no motorised vehicles - we saw a whole load of Landrovers trying to drive up the pass; churning the path up; reeking the air full of diesel etc.

One of the Landrovers had a Surrey Landrover sticker on it - whilst another was from some off-road 4*4 website company.

I intend to write to the local paper (The Cumberland and Westmorland Herald Cumberland and Westmorland Herald) at www.cwherald.com, as I live in Penrith, and will also be writing to the national park to see who authorised this (they had the code to unlock the padlocks on the gates) etc. I would hope all those who were a) affected by these 'people' (term used loosely) and/or b) care about the Lakes and other areas would do the same to try and prevent this kind of thing ever happening again.

Thanks

Simon
