Synopsis

This is more than a guidebook or a local history book; it captures the essence and spirit of the Eden Valley over the last fifty years. A unique and absorbing account of one man's addictive love of this area of subtle beauty, it will appeal not only to Cumbrians but to all who enjoy the countryside. The author employs a fresh and stimulating approach to recent history , concentrating on the ebb and flow of life in town and country rather than the great and mighty. He includes memories of events and customs which are not generally documented: Eden at war, the final hiring fairs and the last days of Lowther Castle, also capturing fading traditions before they disappear from memory - the Home Guard, 'lamb banks', auction marts, and, village bobbies.
