Cumbria

Description:

The Lake District, as a national park has only existed since 1951; Cumbria as a county, since 1974. But the old titles of Cumberland and Westmorland were collectively known as Cumbria for centuries and the mountainous Lakeland heart was an integral part of the region’s fabric. The national park status of the Lake District has defined the region for many visitors but Cumbria has always been a richly diverse and historic county with great rewards for those who go looking. For those who live and work here there has always been more to Cumbria than the ‘Lakes’ but for many visitors the bigger picture is less well known. Cumbria’s landscapes are defined by its geography. It is literally surrounded by uniqueness – the vastness of Morecambe Bay to the South, the bleak Pennines to the East; Scotland’s wild borders and Hadrian’s Wall to the North and the forbidding Irish Sea, washing the West coast.This book is a journey through the lands of Cumbria; a county of breathtaking beauty, grandeur and surprise.
