Overview

Comprehensive guide to the Lake District, fully revised and updated.
Unimprovably good JOHN LANCHESTER, LONDON REVIEW OF BOOKS

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.

Reviews

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 (George Bott, Dec 97)
