Welcome to Langdale and Ambleside Mountain Rescue Team

Welcome. Langdale/Ambleside Mountain Rescue Team (LAMRT) operates in part of the central Lake District, Britain's busiest mountain area.

Dealing with over 100 incidents per year, we are a self-funding dedicated team of 'professional volunteers' coming from all walks of life, united in their love of mountains and their wish to help their fellow mountaineers in trouble.

Created with Admarket's flickrSLiDR.
