Columbia Sportswear Partnership
On Tuesday 23rd May, Columbia Sportswear and the UK’s National Parks announced an official 5-year partnership, the first of it’s kind, hosted by British T.V presenter and outdoor advocate Julia Bradbury.
The partnership will see Columbia work with each of the 15 UK National Parks to help enhance the quality and usability of the Parks for now and for future generations whilst also providing staff, rangers and volunteers with apparel and footwear to keep them warm, dry, cool and protected. Money saved from outfitting staff being made available to fund important park projects.

Exmoor National Park
We had a fantastic time filming on Exmoor National Park and it was great being based in Lynmouth, the Pavilion Cafe was where Julia and the crew had the first pre filming lunch!
The cafe is on the first floor of The Pavilion, in Lynmouth, the Exmoor National Park Visitor Centre. More info: http://www.thepaviliondiningroom.co.uk
The Cliff Railway is an 862 foot length of track that gives you spectacular views across the North Devon coastline. Julia and the crew enjoyed the many journeys when filming for Britain’s Best Walks.
