The Lake District is one of Britain’s most undeniably beautiful and winsome regions. It is therefore hardly surprising that the Lake District has attracted innumerable creative individuals and artists over the years. The poet Coleridge once commented that people ought to view the Lake District “their eyes open, and their hearts awake”.
Throughout the centuries, writers such as Dr John Dalton have tackled the Lake District in verse, while painters such as Joseph Farington and George Beaumont have attempted to capture its beauty and wild power on canvas.
