Description - A Year in the Life of the Langdale... by

Probably the best known and best loved of all Lakeland valleys is caught through the seasons in a series of photographs by noted climber, photographer and writer Bill Birkett. Over a hundred images, ranging from the grandeur of the great mountains surrounding the valley through the more mundane activities of the local farmers to the details of the spectacular prehistoric carvings and artefacts which are still extant, trace and record the subtle interplay of man and nature which characterise the peculiar beauty of the Lake District. This is an irresistible gift book for those who know and love the area.
