About this Book:

The Lake District is a wonderful place to live as well as visit. Only just over forty thousand of us are residents and we welcome nineteen million visitors each year who come to enjoy its beauty. We understand why they come, after all we have chosen to live here. Its appeal is universal.
However, it wasn’t always viewed in this light. Before Wordsworth, Daniel Defoe in his tour of Britain between 1724-6, described the area as, “…the wildest, most barren and frightful of any that I have passed over in England.”
Since then opinions have changed as has the landscape itself – at the hands of man. The reality is that the beauty of Lakeland is shaped by nature and then moulded by human activities. The sheep and cattle farmers of the uplands cleared the scrub trees and opened up the fells to grazing, providing humans with inspirational views and the freedomto roam at will.
The Lake District is a wonderful place to live as well as visit. Only just over forty thousand of us are residents and we welcome nineteen million visitors each year who come to enjoy its beauty. We understand why they come, after all we have chosen to live here. Its appeal is universal.
