Summary
This is the first book to fully explore the development of the Arts and Crafts movement in the Lake District. The Arts and Crafts flourished distinctively in the Lake District, as architects, craftsmen and builders responded to the outstandingly beautiful landscape, to the region's strong sense of tradition and local identity and to the writings of Wordsworth and Ruskin. For a short but intense period, from 1898 to 1910, this rural region became the focus of the latest architectural advances, resulting in a series of uniquely satisfying buildings. Specially commissioned photographs of the houses in their beautiful settings, and of their interiors, along with details of their hand-crafted fittings, are supplemented with paintings, drawings, photographs and plans from public and private collections. Blackwell, the Arts and Crafts House renovated by the Lakeland Arts Trust in 2001, receives around 40,000 visitors a year. This book reveals the extent and importance of the many other excellent examples of Arts and Crafts architecture in the Lake District
