Brought to you by the National Trust for Heritage Open Days, join ranger Joe from the Derwent Riverlands project team on a guided tour at Southwaite beck.

The rivers we look after provide shelter for a myriad of wildlife and plants. None more so than the River Derwent in the Lake District, which is home to otters, Atlantic salmon and vendace – a rare freshwater fish. These cherished species have struggled to cope with increasingly polluted waters and severe floods in recent years, and urgently need our care in order to thrive. With the help of local people, the Riverlands project is repairing habitats and improving water quality to protect the river’s much-loved residents.

Come and take a look at what we are up to while taking in the views from the valley.
