Discovering the Eden Valley
This book explores 100 aspects of the Eden Valley’s history, from ancient castles and pele towers to ten modern sculptures along the river, from famous sons and daughters of the area, such as Lady Anne Clifford, to local eccentrics. Curiosities such as the beck that runs uphill, the only wind in Britain that has a name (the Helm) and the Eden Gorge rock carvings are not forgotten.
Charlie Emett has unearthed a wealth of stories, places and events relating to his beloved Eden Valley, which will enthral and entertain anyone who knows this wonderful corner of Cumbria or, indeed, anyone discovering it for the first time.
