Lake District Landscape and Language: Lost and Found
Friends of the Lake District’s 85th Birthday Exhibition

This exhibition, uses words and photographs to celebrating the 85 years of Friends of the Lake District. Historic Lakeland scenes taken from photographer Gwen Bertelsman’s book ‘Lakeland Life in the 1940s and 1950s’ juxtaposed with photographs of the same scenes as they look today, by renowned local photographers Rosamund and John MacFarlane.

Accompanying the photos are ‘lost’ words for landscape taken inspired by their son and author Robert MacFarlane’s award winning and bestselling books “The Lost Words” and “Landmarks,” and ‘new’ words for landscape features created by local children.

The exhibition runs from 17th September until 26th October, and will move to other venues later.
