In 2017 the English Lake District was awarded World Heritage status by UNESCO as a cultural landscape of global significance; a landscape gifted by Nature and modified by the activities of humankind to create a very distinctive and special place. The famous English landscape painter John Constable once said, We see nothing truly until we understand it.
This suggests that gaining some understanding of why Lake District landscapes look as beautiful as they do will enable us see them more clearly and enrich our enjoyment of them. Hows and Knotts A guide to Lakeland Views takes the reader to twenty-two prominent viewpoints around the World Heritage Site, all with a historical, Norse-derived name of how or knott.
Then, whether you are sitting on a rock at the viewpoint or sitting in an armchair at home, the guide relates the historical story of the view in front of you how the key features in the view came about and how they may change in the future in response to new environmental challenges. After reading this book you will have enjoyed the beauties and story of the Lake District s acclaimed landscapes, and quite probably will not look at them again in quite the same way.
