Red Squirrel Walk
at Shap Wells Hotel

Join rangers Jerry Moss & Gary Murphy for a short walk to watch the red squirrels in the grounds at Shap Wells Hotel. The walk is fairly and short & easy – suitable for all.

The group became a registered charity in 2006 and has a growing network of supporters, members and volunteers plus dedicated ‘Red Squirrel Rangers’.

Individuals of the group had been volunteering to remove the rare grey squirrel prior to 1994. Sadly, it soon became apparent that the grey squirrel was becoming prevalent where they once never existed, and the first cases of squirrel pox presented in Cumbria’s red squirrel populations.


We plan to run 3 guided walks on the day.
