Stop the unnecessary stone pitching in The Lake District National Park

Please sign this petition as an acknowledgement that you want The National Park and Fix The Fells to engage in public consultation before stone pitching any more paths or bridleways in The Lake District.  Stone pitching on walking paths and bridleways in the Lake District National Park has become too wide spread.

Some of our iconic walks and scrambles in The Lake District have been turned into staircases without open discussion on public opinion. This homogenisation of a considerable number of paths in The Lake District is against the will of many walkers and path users. Maintenance of paths and bridleways is important and generally Fix The Fells does a good service restoring water damaged areas such as with their work on Coledale Hause. However, the stone pitching on other areas with little erosion is ruining the experience of these trails which are now being changed forever without the voice of many users being heard.
