9781900639231: The Companion Guide to the Lake District (Companion Guides)

There is hardly a stone in the Lake District that Frank Welsh leaves unturned. From the particular delights of the places with which the Lake Poets are associated - Dove Cottage, Grasmere, Buttermere, Cockermouth - to the remoter parts of the Eden Valley and Furness, over the fells, beside the lakes, through history, topography, archaeology, literature, geology and even bakery, Frank Welsh is the consummate guide and companion, writing with wit, intelligence and true skill. He covers both the less visited, and, in the author's view, unappreciated, parts of the Lake District, as well as those which no visitor will want to miss.

About the Author:

Frank Welsh was born in 1931 in Washington, County Durham and subsequently educated at Magdalene College, Cambridge. A varied career in international business and banking followed, including service on the Boards of nationalised industries and as a member of the Royal Commission on the National Health Service. He has written extensively on imperial British history, notably Hong Kong, Australia and South Africa, and international business and banking. In common with many of his peers in the north-east of England, he grew up with and has sustained a view that real civilisation was only to be found in that corner of the world, although admits to Cambridge and London possessing the occasional advantage.

Review:

Unimprovably good --London Review of Books

The reissue deserves a warm welcome... a friendly, well informed companion, catholic in content and comfortable in presentation, neglecting nothing essential and confirming that a lifetime is needed to sample Lakeland to the full... I would without hesitation put this plump and knowledgeable companion into the top ten modern, one-volume guide books to the Lake District: it's the kind of book that transforms a visit into an experience. --Keswick Reminder
