A NEW map has revealed the most common places that Cumbria's rescue crew are called to, as well as the work they do in our county.

The map is part of a 30 Day Challenge, which is an annual event that is organised and participated in by cartography experts from Ordnance Survey (OS) and beyond.

Hannah Wright, a Technical Relationship Consultant at Ordnance Survey created the map called "Mountain Rescue - Whatever the Weather".

The map shows a data visualisation of the callouts attended to by Mountain Rescue England and Wales teams within the Lake District National Park between January 2019 and July 2023.

Ordnance Survey said: "It is designed to highlight the extraordinary work of the volunteer Mountain Rescue teams who are on call 24/7, 365 days of the year and go out to help, no questions asked, whatever the weather."

The map shows a total of 2154 callouts in the specific time frame, and highlights where the callouts are most common. Scafell Pike, perhaps unsurprisingly, shows the most callouts. Other areas include Helvellyn, Sharp Edge Blencathra, Cat Bells, Langdale Pikes and The Old Man of Coniston.

The map created by Hannah uses OS Open Zoomstack in night style and was created in QGIS and finished in Adobe Illustrator.
