About the book:

This work covers the whole of northern England, west of the Pennines, from the River Lune to the River Eden. The author begins with the Lakes, the most famous tourist region in Great Britain, and goes on to deal with Carlisle and the Eden Valley, the Solway, Morecambe Bay, East Westmoreland and Lancashire, north of the River Lune. These are like the "outer suburbs" of Lakeland, and owe much of their personality and history to the presence of the nearby mountains. The book takes a look at some of the most popular places in England, and at the same time, draws attention to lesser-known spots which are well worth discovering. It points out landscapes and shore-scapes, woods and flowers, stone circles and Roman camps, farms, villages, churches, old iron ore mines and new art galleries. It drives to the heart of the district searching in the rock, in the physical shape of the landscape, in the history and in the temper of its people.
