Use Brownfield Sites First

The CPRE have launched an initiative to find out where brownfield sites are around the country. The argument is that to meet the target for new homes which the Government says we need, we should use brownfield sites first, before giving over green fields and the countryside to developers who obviously prefer to build on greenfield sites because it is more profitable. I think it is inevitable that some greenfield sites will have to be used, especially in rural areas, as homes have to be where people are but the principle still holds good and before expanding towns/cities into the ...

Lakes walks suitable for a 6 year old

Hello All,

We’re off to the Lake District for the first time in a couple of weeks and I was wondering if anyone could recommend walks suitable for an enthusiastic 6 year old and a less enthusiastic wife! I recently introduced my daughter to walking with a walk on the South Coast that she absolutely loved it – best part of the holiday apparently. We will be staying near Windermere and I was thinking of something around the 4 to 5 mile mark but avoiding anything with ‘exposure’. Does anyone have any tips?
