The English Lakes (Hardback)

Ian Thompson


A book that fully showcases the gloriousness of The English Lakes, this brilliant hardback guide by Ian Thompson demonstrates how the image of the Lake District was shaped by the great authors and poets of time gone by. Told with all the fascinating insight of a man who grew up in nearby Barrow-in-Furness and went fell-walking from a young age, this elegantly chaptered book details the origins of our fascination with the lakes and charts how they went from being viewed as ‘horrid mountains’ to ‘vales of peace’. Filled with superb colour photography and illustrations, this is a lovely gift.
