The Green Lane Association (GLASS) has received an appeal from the National Trust for help to keep Tilbertwaite Lane open.
The greenlane, in the Little Langdale area of Cumbria, is a favourite among greenlaners, but is suffering badly from erosion. The erosion is causing two of the historic stone walls to become unstable and they’re at risk of collapse. This could cause a safety hazard for users and stock management problems for the tenant farmers as well as damage to the environment.
The National Trust are planning to deal with it by reinforcing the eroded banks beneath the walls. Repairs have been costed at around £4,000 and a Justgiving page has been set up for donations – and is already halfway towards the target after just four days.
Help GLASS support the National Trust in keeping our greenlanes open. The National Trust understands that vehicles have a legal right to use this route and do not wish to stop them.
If everyone gives few quid the target will soon be reached and it will help keep this lane open for all users.
