Keswick is an English market town in Cumbria lying within the Lake District National Park.
A mining town in the 18th century it is now a major holiday centre with tourism the main industry for more than 150 years.
Clark & Kent's proven track record in BMX track building led them to supply and install a new BMX and MTB pump track in the heart of the Lake District National Park. Working alongside the clients, C&K carried out the specialist shaping of the pump track features.
Utilising the lie of the land, a cascading design was agreed on to maintain good rider flow and achieve the best pump track riding experience. The scope of work included several typical designs and construction-related items and methods. They included user-group andcommunity consultation, the designand supply of drawings to assist with planning, fencing andsecuring the site, treeprotection measures, siteclearance and drainage works along with sub-base formation and tarmac surfacing, concreting and turfing.
Keswick pump track riders have a Facebook page here with some great videos and the official visitor website Visit Keswick features this family friendly BMX track on its 'what to do in Keswick' pages. Following the original construction and after the fantastic response from the client, we returned to Keswick and added a full tarmac riding surface, fully inclusive and maintenance-free.
