About this book

A second New Naturalist on one of the best-loved areas of the UK. Derek Ratcliffe grew up in the northern part of Cumbria and the emphasis on that area counterbalances the previous Lake District, whose authors were better acquainted with the southern part.
In 12 chapters Ratcliffe covers climate, geology, naturalists and societies, and the various landscape types: estuaries, coastline, lowlands, foothills, dales and fells. He considers conservation problems and measures, and assesses environmental prospects.
