Thomas West Series

Thomas West published 'A Guide to the Lakes of Cumberland, Westmorland and Lancashire' in 1778. In it he described twenty-one 'stations' or viewpoints in detail based around Coniston, Windermere, Derwent Water and Bassenthwaite.

My own fascination with landscape in general, and this part of the world in particular had been confirmed many years ago when I began to walk and climb the mountains surrounding West's stations.
