The High Places: Leaves from a Lakeland Notebook, Harry Griffin
Description of The High Places: Leaves from a Lakeland Notebook
A Lakeland enthusiast of the first order, and a native of Barrow-in-Furness, Harry Griffin wrote about the Lake District for a variety of northern publications for more than fifty years, including the Country Diary of the Manchester Guardian (later the Guardian), Cumbria magazine and the Lancashire Evening Post. The selection in "The High Places" is from the last of these, and is illustrated with sketches by Alfred Wainwright.
For almost 30 years Griffin wrote a weekly feature called 'Leaves from a Lakeland Notebook' for the Lancashire Evening Post. This book combines a selection from around 1500 of these articles with illustrations from A. Wainwright.
