We couldn't do this alone. The bid is being delivered by the Lake District National Park Partnership on behalf of a group of organisations. The bid will go to the UK government who will review and in turn submit to UNESCO.

Don't forget to show your support and back the bid for World Heritage status by adding your vote:
"We're already proud of living here. We'd be proud as punch to be living, growing up and working in a landscape that was recognised the world over as a national treasure."
"We find our little piece of heaven in the Lakes: something different every season and every visit. It would be the icing on the cake if it became a World Heritage site."
"We respect the landscape that our businesses are fortunate to sit in. A 'badge of distinction' would strengthen that - we'll continue as guardians and ambassadors of the park, learning to cherish without smothering."
