The Landscape Project - History of the Lake District LandscapeVideo

© UKC News

The BMC has released the first film of a four-part series called The Landscape Project, which showcases the natural history of some of Wales and England's best climbing and hillwalking venues and our connections to these landscapes as outdoor enthusiasts. In this first episode, research scientist Dr Nathan Chrismas and fell top assessor Zac Poulton explain the geological formation of Helvellyn in the Lake District and the challenges in preserving its natural environment as we know it today.

On filming the project, Nathan told UKC:

'There's never been a time where knowing a little bit more about the landscape or its inhabitants hasn't enhanced my experience in some way. Learning about the geology and natural history of a place can mean that even the most familiar routes can reveal new stories. Helvellyn is a very well-travelled hill, but whether it's your first time up Striding Edge or you work on the mountain every day - there are always new things to discover if you know how to look!' 

Future films in the series will feature Malham Cove, Pembroke and Devon.
