A Lake District Christmas

A nostalgic miscellany of Tales and Tradition



A nostalgic journey into Cumbrian yuletides past in the company of Cumbrian authors such as William and Dorothy Wordsworth, Hardwicke Rawnsley, Robert Anderson, the Cumberland Bard and Sara Hutchinson.Celebrate merry neets and  visit the Windermere frost fair. This is a celebration of Christmas in Westmorland and Cumberland and gives us  a wonderful miscellany of seasonal prose, poems, recipes and songs.

Alan Cleaver once again delights his audience with a social history of Christmas as it was – and hopefully the very best traditions live on in present- day Christmas celebrations
