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.

A donation of in excess of £600 was raised by the Sunday Walking Club, Preston. We rescued one of their members from Fairfield and this was their way of saying thanks. It is much appreciated. Members then set off for a walk, complete with our ex-casualty, now recovered. It's great to hear a happy ending.
