Gatescarth Pass, Lake District

After the devastating floods in late 2015, the pass suffered a landslip. With priority being low on the list, the Green Lane Association and the TRF jointly funded the repair so that this iconic green road could be enjoyed by users the following year.

The pass was low on the list to be repaired, and as this is such an iconic lane it seemed only fit that we helped pay the bill to get the lane re-opened as soon as we could. We negotiated a weekend in May for the first permits to be issued (Gatescarth Pass is a permit only green road) which meant no open days were lost in 2016. The Green Lane Association has now negotiated to provide volunteers to check the permits on each open day.
