50 Gems of Cumbria: The History & Heritage of the Most Iconic Places [9781445663968]

(No reviews yet) Write a Review
Cumbria defies any attempt to measure its true beauty. It is home to England's highest mountain (Scafell Pike) and both the longest and deepest lakes (Windermere and Wast Water respectively). It also happens to be the third largest county in the UK (by area) and home to 'Britain's Favourite View', but Cumbria captures your soul in a way that statistics and awards will never truly explain. There are far more than fifty gems in Cumbria and the Lake District, but the fifty in this book are a great place to start. To say they are places that we love is to do them a disservice; these are places that get under our skin and invade our mind, drawing us back to them time and again. Some of the gems will take your breath away, some will make you pause and think about how our ancestors shaped the landscape, while others have a fantastic tearoom or cosy pub nearby. 50 Gems of Cumbria is overflowing with awe-inspiring photographs and fascinating facts to draw you closer to the places you already know and love and to tempt you to discover new gems of your own.
AUTHOR: Beth & Steve returned to Steve's roots in Cumbria in January 2011. What started out as an enthusiastic and popular blog developed into a strong following across social media and led to writing and photography commissions for a variety of magazines and websites. They currently work with a range of organisations and publications including Cumbria Wildlife Trust, The Outdoor Guide with Julia Bradbury and the Camping and Caravanning Club. As experienced hikers they tackle the outdoors in all weathers to find the spectacular and the dramatic be that a far-reaching panorama or a tiny ecosystem hidden away within limestone crags. Such is their knowledge of the Cumbrian landscape that they were invited by Kensington Palace to guide the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge on a recent walk. They've also taken a keen interest in the history and geology of the region.
