Lake District View of Windermere Cumbria

"The Lake District in Books" has been online since July 2011, serving people who are looking for the best in books, maps, guides, and more, about the English Lake District. We have now moved from our original site to this new one, with enhanced software to provide an even better service and a steadily increasing selection of Lake District books. We hope you like it and can find what you want.

A Few More Words of Introduction

I hope you will enjoy our new location. I've tried to keep its structure of categories broadly similar to what we had before but will be able to add additional sections and special interest areas far more easily than in the past. Don't forget also that there's a partner site, "Lake District Gifts", with a wide variety of Lakeland-related products.

I'm hoping also to be able to transfer the old blog across to this site. Watch out for it and subsequently for periodic updates. Meanwhile we're now also on Twitter and on Facebook.
