A Literary Guide to the Lake District

£7.99

Product description

Although there are numerous walking and climbing guides there is -astonishingly - no comprehensive guide to the numerous literary connections of the Lake District. Grevel Lindop has filled that gap, steering us through all the Lakeland places, famous and unknown, from the Wordworths' Dove Cottage to Blea Tarn, subject of Auden's first poem, from Beatrix Potter's Sawrey to the site of Melvyn Bragg's MAID OF BUTTERMERE. Effortless scholarship, easy wit and a real love of the Lakes make this a delightful book, also an immensely practical one, following the main routes through the Lakes with the help of maps and local plans, and illustrated with integrated period engravings and line drawings by well known artists, including Beatrix Potter. The book is beautifully designed, with different sections for the five major routes throughput the Lake District. Car parks are indicated, directions are clearly given, as are details and opening times of all sites open to the public.

Excellent pages, slight edge and D/J wear + price clipped.
