Lakeland Views

Classic view of Langdale Pikes

Welcome to Lakeland Views

.......where the fascinating stories behind the English Lake District's iconic World Heritage landscapes are celebrated.

Here, when we look at a view, we see more than the beauty of the scene. We see the works of nature and immerse ourselves in the stories of our human engagement with the landscape over centuries. 

As the English landscape painter John Constable  said "We see nothing truly until we understand it"

On this site there is information about two books written by author Guy Richardson: "Hows and Knotts - A Guide to Lakeland Views" published in 2019 and "The Scafells - A Grand Tour" published on 28 June 2023.
