Projects

We have completed in 2016 a survey of all Ambleside’s public benches. You can view a PDF page here which includes a link to a Google map of these which not only accurately pinpoints their location, it also comments on their condition and indicates to whom they are dedicated.

In early 2017 we also carried out a survey of plaques in Ambleside. You can view a PDF page here which includes a link to a Google map pinpointing the location and showing a photograph of each one.

The Civic Trust are also proud to have contributed to the installation of a new panorama at Waterhead (picture left).

    During the last few years working parties have carried out a number of tasks aimed at conserving the environment of Ambleside:

  • Clearing weeds and brambles from the “55 Steps” up from Lake Road to the Gale
  • Controlling Japanese Knotweed in the Clappersgate area
  • Controlling Himalayan Balsam in Rothay Park
  • Participation in the litter pick before the Olympic torch came through Ambleside
  •  Participation in the Galava fort reconstruction project
