Hidden Literary Lakeland

Beatrix Potter, William and Dorothy Wordsworth, S.T. Coleridge and Arthur Ransome. The Lake District World Heritage Site has inspired some of our most loved literature as well as the Arts and Crafts Movement and progressive thinkers from John Ruskin to Harriet Martineu. What inspired them, and will it inspire you?
