I very much welcome the success of the British Mountaineering Council's Mend our Mountains campaign which last year raised almost £104,000 to help repair damaged and eroded paths on some of our most iconic mountains and upland landscapes in our national parks.

The Government will be providing over £190 million for the national park authorities in England until 2020. The national park authorities will look to work with the British Mountaineering Council in providing any help they can give to future projects which can help make a difference to the health and condition of these treasured and much used landscapes.
