Stickle Ghyll incident

Plan a Safe Trip

The mountains of the Lake District are not high by international standards, and severe snow and ice conditions are rare, but nevertheless they should not be underestimated as they can be unforgiving for even the most experienced and well-prepared walkers.

Severe weather conditions can set in in minutes (particularly given the proximity of the area to the coast) and navigation can be difficult at the best of times due to a scarcity of obvious paths and tracks.

Do not venture into the mountains unless you are fully equipped and prepared!
