About this book

When Wainwright made his first visit to the Lake District in the summer of 1930, aged just twenty-three, he was unprepared for what he found when he left the train at Windermere station. 'That week changed my life,' he wrote years later. 'It was the first time that I'd looked upon beauty.' His moment of epiphany came when he viewed Lake Windermere from the vantage point of Orrest Head.

Millions of people have followed in Wainwright's footsteps. Indeed, for a lot of people, Windermere is the Lake District. But even when Ambleside, Bowness, Windermere and Lakeside are heaving with visitors, there's still room to roam - on the shoreline, on the lake itself and on the fells which surround it. This book is a celebration of the lake as it is today. John Morrison's photographs capture the lake and its surroundings in many different moods: showing not just what the lake looks like, but what it feels like too.
