Lakes split over bid to ‘rewild’ beauty spots

THE aristocratic owner of some of the Lake District’s most iconic mountains is at loggerheads with farmers and conservationists after announcing he has become a supporter of “rewilding” — and wants the “sterile” grassland covering his fells replaced with heather, shrubs, trees and wildlife.

This seems to be the current thing. I don't know about the Lakes, but on the chalk Downs, without sheep or rabbits, they just scrub up and can turn into yew forest with nothing growing under them.

Bring back the sheep, wool and roast dinners . You cannot eat or wear a view. Can't see very far either if it's all trees , most of our iconic landscapes are shaped by farming.
