Below are listed my
Heroes of Lakeland:
- William Wordsworth - Poet
He was born and lived virtually all of his life
in the Lake District, and was one of the first people to become associated with the
area. In his poems he describes the nature of the landscape and its
effect on the human sprit.
- Alfred Wainwright - Author of "A Pictorial
Guide To The Lakeland Fells"
What more can be said that that hasn't been said
already. His seven Pictorial Guides To The Lakeland Fells are now
- Hunter Davis - Author of "A Walk Around The
"A Walk Around The Lakes" is one of the best
books written about the Lake District. It really captures the
essence of the area by taking you on a tour of the Lakes and
introducing some of the famous, and not so famous, residents both past and
present. A book you will want to read again and again.
Hunter Davis is also well known for his biographies on William
Wordsworth and Alfred Wainwright.
- W Heaton Cooper - Lakeland Artist
Born in Coniston and followed in his father's
footsteps as an artist. His stylized way of painting is instantly
recognizable. His work can be seen at the Heaton Cooper Studio
shop in Grasmere.
- Lee Chapman - Photographer
If you haven't come across Lee Chapman before he
has a Gallery shop in Keswick. He uses a 5 X 4 view camera and
Velvia film. The large prints on display are absolutely stunning.
