News Update: Recent Meetings About The Orton Fells Group


1. Orton Parish Council recently voted to support the amendment proposed by Friends of The Lake District and local landscape conservationists to include Reagill and Sleagill area in the National Park boundary extension plans. Please see for a map of that area.

2. At a public meeting in Reagill Village Hall Feb. 28, people gathered to share their views on the position of the northern boundary of the National Park extension proposed by Natural England and to hear about the idea to move it further north to include the Reagill and Sleagill area see url above. There was an exchange of views and opinions and Charles Paxton and Jack Ellerby of Friends of The Lake District  answered questions.
A resident requested that a show of hands be made to gauge the mood of the meeting.
