Orton Fells Farm Cluster
We cover a broad spectrum of Upland landscape which is located in the Westmorland Dales National Park, part of the wider Yorkshire Dales National Park and we are located in the parish of Orton in Cumbria.
This area includes the River Lune and some of its tributaries, several Sites of Special Scientific Interest, Great Asby Scar National Nature Reserve, Sunbiggin Tarn, Asby Complex Special Area of Conservation and numerous species rich protected road verges.
The Coast to Coast footpath passes through this area and we welcome many regular visitors.
Our group came to together to protect our environment through a better understanding of our agricultural management practices and their impact on our soil health.
In addition we are keen to understand the wider biodiversity and habitats of our cumulative area and how we can work to improve their connectivity.
