Along the River Kent
The River Kent is born at the head of Kentmere, a wide glacial valley in Cumbria. Flowing through Kentmere, Staveley, Burneside, Kendal, Sedgwick and out into Morecambe Bay, the river takes a varied course – passing through rural landscapes and once-industrial regions.
Catherine Rothwell takes us on a walk along the Kent, from source to sea. Drawing on many interviews with local characters, which are interwoven with a blend of recollections, nostalgia and history, this delightful book will appeal to anyone who knows the river and the unspoilt landscape through which it flows.
