Beyond the boundaries of the Lake District

Research output: Contribution to specialist publicationFeatured article



This article responds to recent changes in the size and status of the Lake District National Park by considering the historical interconnectedness of the Lake District with the region that surrounds it. Drawing on visual and verbal responses to the landscape of the Lakes region, Christopher Donaldson reveals how historical perceptions of the region contrast our understanding of the Lakes today.
