Millions of people visit the Lake District every year, yet few know what really goes on in the lives of the people who are most closely connected to the land.
Land Keepers throws a spotlight on Cumbria's upland farmers. What wisdom do they have about the land? What really matters to them? What challenges do they face? What is the value of the unique culture of Lakeland hill farming?
To ensure a balanced view, we have looked into the inspiration, policies and activities of environmental and conservation organisations, land owners and governing bodies.
This website gives a glimpse of the images we have captured and the stories we've heard during our research between 2012 and 2014. The touring exhibition of work is your chance to get close up to the images, and the stories.
Days on farms, gathering sheep on the fells, trips to shows and sales, conversations with farmers, vets, politicians, butchers, walkers, park rangers and conservationists, meetings with policy makers and deliverers ...
We have been privileged to have the chance to experience the land from the shepherds' points of view, and learn about what really goes on behind the scenes, both on farms and at a policy level.
