Save our Fell!

Do you want to help save Beacon Fell Country Park from being axed?

The Lancashire Countryside Service that runs Beacon Fell is in danger of being closed due to Lancashire County Council cuts

Beacon Fell has over 200,000 visitors a year who come from far and wide to enjoy its beauty and the surrounding area.  If we lose the Countryside Service we could lose all the facilities, including the CafĂ© and the Visitor Centre.  The Fell will not be maintained and will attract litter and anti-social behaviour.

There are at least 100 school visits per year that enjoy the Fell facilities for Outdoor Education.

Children enjoy taking part in the summer timetable of activities, led by the Rangers and Volunteer Rangers, especially the Gruffalo Walks, mini-beast hunts, den building, etc, etc ...

Many sections of society use the Fell including cyclists, horse riders, walkers and people with either temporary or permanent mobility problems who come to use the trampers.

Altogether a great asset for enjoying the countryside, exercising and socialising.

How can you help?

  • sign our petition in the Visitor Centre at Beacon Fell
  • Go on line to Lancashire County Council website and sign the on-line petition
  • Write to your local councillor
  • Make your voice heard about this, and other cuts, affecting our communities.

More New Play Equipment

More new play equipment, adjacent to existing equipment, to expand play opportunities at Beacon Fell was installed recently, by the Friends of Beacon Fell.  This is part of a wider project which currently includes den building and minibeast areas, balancing logs, a storytelling area and natural picture frames.  We will continue to develop ideas for children that encourage play at Beacon Fell.
