You’d be forgiven for thinking this area had had its fair share of the limelight in recent months. Another successful series of ‘The Lakes’, the new ‘The Dales’ series and the short comedy series ‘The Trip’ have all helped to put the region on the map. The BBC even staged the Radio 1 Big Weekend in Carlisle only last weekend.
And the good news is that it doesn’t stop there! The BBC has just announced that it is adapting the children’s classic Swallows and Amazons for our television screens. The stories, the first of which was published in 1930, are true classics that document the adventures of young children holidaying in the Lake District and, more specifically, on nearby Windermere.
