This Land is your Land

This land is your land, facing change in a rural county

On 10 March 2018, Carlisle Cathedral hosted a discussion day about the future of rural communities, the environment, and farming in the county.

The day brought together a number of inspiring speakers including Caz Graham, rural broadcaster and writer and John Sentamu, Archbishop of York.  Delegates had the opportunity to join workshops and discussions addressing issues as diverse as farming, the National Park and food businesses.  It was a fascinating day offering insight into the many facets of the county’s rural life.

Bishop James Bell's summary of the day can be seen here.
