Fells festival with a floral focus
The Cumberland News - UK
Mountain habitats in north Cumbria are under the spotlight as part of the Flora of the Fells festival.
The festival, which began in April and runs until October, is part of an initiative to raise awareness of the importance of wild areas in the county.
More than 140 events are planned, including walks, farm visits and nature-based arts and crafts workshops.
On Sunday at 2pm there is a three-hour free walk around Old Stoddah Farm, at Penruddock, near Penrith, which will introduce people to an organically-farmed red deer herd and Dexter cattle.
