Area Ranger - South Lakes (Coniston and Little Langdale).
I trained on the National Trust's 'Careership' programme (now the Ranger Academy) and worked on a number of properties in Cheshire, before spending some time working as a ranger in the suburbs of London. My main interest is in natural history, both in terms of conserving our amazing wildlife, and inspiring other people to love it too. I'm lucky to work on such a varied patch where we've got opportunities to do both - from the Atlantic oakwoods and Victorian designed landscapes around Coniston and Tarn Hows, to the grazed uplands of Little Langdale with its strong farming heritage and important wetlands.
