About this book

On a journey from Cockermouth through the Vale of Lorton, to Crummock Water and Buttermere, part of the Lake District he has known intimately since childhood, Angus Winchester shows how clues to the evolution, history and culture of the Lakeland landscape may be found in the names given to its farms, becks, villages, fields and boundaries.

The language of the landscape can ‘speak’ to us, not only in place names but also in tangible features and through layers of memory and meaning built up across the centuries.

Media reviews

An engaging and inspiring journey through a Cumbria valley in time and space, with insights that reach far beyond."
– Diana Whaley, author of A Dictionary of Place Names

"The reader learns much through specific local detail about the wider history of the Lake District. The author's great knowledge of place names, coupled with his work on manorial records, adds greatly to the pleasure of the book."
– Bronwen Riley, Cumberland and Westmorland Antiquarian and Archeological Society Journal

"[...] .This is a book that everyone in the valleys should have on their shelves. Surely one wants to know the origin of field names, how boundaries have been fixed, what water does to us and what water has been, the numbers of sheep, the industries, the use of bracken. It is here, the indispensable guide and settler of fireside arguments."
– From The Wanderer, Lorton and Fells Local History Society Newsletter
