Site Editor's Footnote
The Lake District landscape is significantly more than the fells and the water alone. There are structures, particularly farm structures and their associated farmhouses, amongst the fells. Roads and trackways, both ancient and recent, have likewise assisted in shaping the landscape as it now is. Above all, the the rocks beneath have influenced what is now seen on their surface. We trust that you'll enjoy Scafell: Portrait of a Mountain but also that you'll browse around to see the broader range of titles in our Lake District Landscape category.
