I just saw a press release from DEFRA:

Yorkshire, Cumbria and Lancashire will share the largest area of almost continuous National Park land following the decision to extend two of Englandís most celebrated National Parks, the Yorkshire Dales and the Lake District.

The announcement by Environment Secretary Elizabeth Truss today will see the Yorkshire Dales grow by nearly 24% and Lake District by 3%.

An additional 188 square miles of land across Cumbria and a small part of Lancashire will now be protected for future generations. This covers:

East - to include an area from Birkbeck Fells Common to Whinfell Common; and

South - to include an area from Helsington Barrows to Sizergh Fell, an area north of Sizergh Castle and part of the Lyth valley
