One family's Lakeland Fell walking Blog by Rob Marsh



"Many are those who have fallen under the
spell of Lakeland, and many are they who
have been moved to tell of their affection
in story, verse and picture"

"Surely there is no other place in this whole wonderful world quite like Lakeland... No other so exquisitely lovely, no other so charming, no other that calls so insistently across a gulf of distance. All who truly love Lakeland are exile when away from it"
