Lakeland & Cumbria from the Air
Lakeland & Cumbria from the Air
  • Description

Ronny Mitchell’s unique aerial view of the Lake District vividly shows the effect that man has had on this treasured landscape over the last two millennia. Drawn from his collection of over 3000 photographs which he has taken from his light aircraft over the years, Lakeland from the Air covers early history, from stone circles to the Romans and the medieval monastic remains of Cumbria, to travel (old railways, old and new roads and tracks, harbours); industry (nineteenth century to Sellafield, quarries, mines, peat extraction and dams), farming and forestry and today’s leisure industry. In this stunning geographical survey, Mitchell does not ignore the homes and hamlets of Lakeland, from humble farmsteads to stately homes, towns and parks.

Ronny Mitchell is a council member of the Friends of the Lake District and was a major contributor to Lakeland Life in the 1940s and 1950s, also published by Halsgrove, which won the Lake District Book of the Year Award in 2004. He is also a regular contributor to Conserving Lakeland, the FoLD magazine, and their annual calendar.

ISBN 9781841144696, hardback, 241x230mm, 144 pages.
