About this Book:

THIS book is perhaps the definitive guide to the Lake District, listing every aspect of this fascinating and beautiful landscape in an A-Z format.
More than 500 pages of information cover everything from fishing to the poets, hotels to fell running. Illustrated with more than 40 original line drawings the text, though packed with facts is never dull.
There are additional sections covering Lakeland quarries, mines, roads, lakes, tarns, streams and water sources, plus a 'longest, highest, deepest' section for those interested in records.
The work covers the area of the Lake District National Park, giving information on every place named on the OS 2.5 inches maps and every entry has a six figure grid reference.
More than ten years work has gone into this book and every minute has been worthwhile. For anyone interested in the Lake District this is a 'must have' book which will provide entertainment and education for years to come.

An amazing piece of work, how can one mind, or one monster data base, have accumulated so many facts about Lakeland, from places to people, fishing to films? I don't think I have ever seen so many invaluable Lakeland facts gathered together in one small space. Well, big space really. It's a whopper of a book. I would hate to proof read it - but the proof is in the reading, that herein lies everything of a geographical nature which any Lakeland lover will ever need... Hunter Davies.
