Bidding for Lake District mountain ends

BIDDING to purchase a Cumbria mountain has now closed, with several bids submitted to the selling agents.


Lake District mountain Blencathra was up for sale for nearly £2 million after its owner Hugh Lowther decided to sell the peak to pay off an inheritance tax bill.

People interested in buying the mountain had until noon today to submit a bid.

The Friends of Blencathra launched a campaign to make sure the mountain is owned by the public, and had been raising money since May to submit a bid.

John Robson, director of selling agents H&H Land and Property, said: “We are very excited by the interest that has been shown. We confirm that a number of offers have been received and are confident that we can move towards the sale of this iconic mountain.

“Now that the closing date has passed and offers have been submitted the next role for us here at H&H Land and Property, as agents, is to review each of the offers, report them to the trustees and await further instruction from our clients.”

Have your say

Could they not make up a package and throw in Walney as well.

I really hope the buyer leaves the mountain where it is and doesn't take it abroad.
