Mobile 3 in Langdale

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.

In this unique and difficult time we respectfully request that you follow current guidelines with respect to Corona virus. This will help to protect team members and help to place no additional burden on the work of the emergency services and NHS at this stage. The hills will still be here when it's all over

Ask yourself 3 questions before you set off:

Do I have the right GEAR?

Do I know what the WEATHER will be like?

Am I confident I have the KNOWLEDGE & SKILLS for the day?

Be Adventure Smart
