Imprint: Yale University Press
The most authoritative guide to the Lake District and surrounding area, this volume covers the outstanding vernacular architecture, unspoiled historic towns, and fine Victorian and Arts and Crafts houses throughout the region, and ranges from the shipbuilding town of Barrow-in-Furness in the south to the cathedral city of Carlisle in the north. A popular tourist destination, Cumbria inspired the Romantic poets, John Ruskin, and Beatrix Potter.
