History Press Lake District Icons No Colour
This product is not available

There is no other area which has attracted the range of great writers, artists, thinkers, walkers and climbers as the Lake District. From William Wordsworth to Melvyn Bragg and Beatrix Potter to Chris Bonington, Cumbria's beautiful landscape has provided the inspiration to help men and women reach the pinnacle of their chosen fields.

Lake District Icons takes a fresh look at these influential figures – including interviews and pictures with some of the area's best-known personalities – and shows how they have been affected by the lakes, mountains and fells around them. Using original photography and research it also throws a light on some of the area's unique features, such as Herdwick sheep and Kendal Mint Cake, to prove that there's nowhere like the Lake District.
