LAKE DISTRICT ICONS by Michaela Robinson-Tate and Phil Rigby, £12.99
ISBN 978-0-7509-5910-0

LAKE District Icons is our fan letter to the place where we’re privileged to work, say Michaela Robinson-Tate and Phil Rigby of their richly illustrated new book.

Whether it’s Herdwick sheep or Kendal mint cake, Beatrix Potter, Alfred Wainwright or Coniston Water, writer Michaela and photographer Phil – of Cumbria Life magazine – have taken an original look at some of the Lake District’s best-loved people, places and things.

Lake District Icons is a book with great appeal, if the number of friends and family keen to borrow my copy is anything to go by.

Each chapter is filled with detail, brought to life and given a contemporary feel through interviews with key figures and stunning photography that conveys a real sense of drama and personality.
