Tom Rawling

£7.50

Tom Rawling was born in 1916 in Ennerdale, then Cumberland and now Cumbria.

Educated at the village school, Whitehaven Grammar School and the University College, London, he was a soldier in the Second World War and then a teacher for thirty years, visiting regularly to see family, and fish his native waters.
Retiring in 1976, he began to write poetry and published three well-regarded verse collections. He died in Oxford in 1996.
The Lamplugh and District Heritage Society have enabled this collection of most of his poems so that Tom earns a rightful place alongside the best of Cumbriam poets.
