and the Emergence of the Landscape Protection Movement
In 1894 Manchester Corporation created Thirlmere. In 1894 the National Trust was founded. Ian Brodie examines the original conservation debate and the continuing battle over this important landscape.
He looks at the freedom to roam over the water catchment, the afforestation of the dale and the extent of the common land – and he sees hope for the future:
“The dale is rich in geomorphology, history, culture and legend. It remains a vital and living community.”
