Haweswater management team dismayed at high level of littering and vandalism


The management team at Wild Haweswater have taken to social media to share their dismay at the antics of groups of campers that stayed in the region at the weekend. 
A spokesperson said:

"We are appalled, shocked and saddened at the state in which Haweswater has been left following this weekend. After reports of groups of campers, our limited staff visited the site to find felled trees, intentionally collapsed dry-stone walls, BBQs, still-smouldering fires and litter. 

"In addition to being an essential reservoir, Haweswater is a nature reserve; supporting a myriad of important upland species and habitats. To think that it has been abused in this way comes as a great shock and disappointment to our staff and dedicated volunteers.

"As many of you will be aware, BBQs, fires & camping are not permitted at Haweswater; so it was alarming to discover all of which took place this weekend. For the mess to be left behind for us to remove on top of this, is dreadful. On top of latex gloves left on site, gates being left open, emergency service access routes being blocked by cars, this inconsiderate behaviour is becoming increasingly unacceptable.

"We are aware that many of you would never behave in such a way at Haweswater, and for this we would like to thank you. It is essential that we enjoy outdoor spaces appropriately, and with respect, for nature, local communities, and for those working in them."
