There are countless books covering aspects of the most beautiful corner of England but none which reveal little known facts regarding it as a location for filming. David thoroughly and interestingly brings to light the great number of films both large and small that have featured Lakeland on camera. Some less obvious than others but no less absorbing, you may well wish to seek out and visit where productions have captured the scenic delights of Lakeland. David’s book is an engaging and enlightening read and definitely one for the shelf alongside other
works celebrating England’s finest landscape

Terry Abraham, filmmaker and photographer

This is the first ever comprehensive guide to the history of movies filmed in Cumbria and the Lake District, since the early twentieth century to the present day. Presented in an entertaining and easy to access A-Z format, it will take you on a journey through the filmic landscape of one of the world’s most beautiful places.
The book, part of the Cumbria Guide series, recounts the area’s rich and absorbing film and social history alongside an assortment of hand-drawn maps, photographs and film stills. It is packed full of information on how to visit the breathtaking
scenery and locations where film history was made.
You will be able to immerse yourself in the lush green world where Star Wars created an alien landscape or take a trip around Swallows and Amazons country, not to mention joining the ranks of Withnail and I pilgrims or sampling the nostalgic Brief Encounter tea rooms where a tiny piece of grit kick-started an enduring romance…
