The Lake District is one of the world's most beautiful regions, attracting millions to its unspoiled countryside each year. Now in paperback, this definitive book is a must for visitors and natives alike; even those who know and love Cumbria will find much here that is new and revealing. This monumental work, complemented by 200 magnificent illustrations, covers every aspect of Cumbria. The history, the people, the architecture, the topography, the arts, and the tourist attractions are all expertly and lovingly described. Based upon a deep knowledge of almost every valley and fell, the book comprehensively embraces all that is noteworthy--from Morecambe Bay in the south to the Scottish border in the north, and from the Irish Sea coast in the west to the Pennines in the east.
