About this product
- DescriptionVoices of the Lake District is the unique and fascinating result of many conversations and interviews with local people in the Lakeland community, recalling life in the area over the past century. Compiled by Ambleside Oral History Group, vivid memories are recounted, including childhood and schooldays, work and play, sport and leisure, as well as the war years. Illustrated with over 50 archive pictures, many previously unpublished, this volume also demonstrates the humour, courage and indomitable spirit of the local population - from the farmers, shop-keepers, shepherds and quarrymen to those who lived above and below stairs in the grand houses - and paints a revealing picture of life in this uniquely beautiful setting. Anyone who kws the Lakes, as a resident or a visitor, will be amused and entertained, surprised and moved by these stories, which capture the changes that have taken place in the area through the eyes of its residents.
