Friends of the Lake District – The Early Years
Established in 1934, Friends of the Lake District is one of the most influential conservation groups in England.
It played a crucial role in the campaign for the Lake District to be designated as a national park during the 1930s and 1940s; its work to protect and increase knowledge of this area continues to the present day. ‘Friends of the Lake District; The Early Years’ is the first detailed study of the inception of this organisation, and was commissioned to celebrate the 75th anniversary of its foundation.
