Holker Estates Permits

Mearness Access – New for February 2021

We’re pleased to announce that following representations from local parish councils, Holker will be re-establishing the permissive path around Mearness Point.  Holker are keen to work alongside the local community to protect the wildlife and natural beauty of the area, therefore a permit system similar to others operated locally by Natural England and Holker will be introduced to facilitate ongoing access. Permits will be free of charge and anyone can apply.  The permit system is expected to be in operation by 1st February 2021 but applications can be made in the meantime by emailing estateoffice@holker.co.uk or telephoning 015395 58313.
