Having lived in Cumbria for over 25 years, walked all of Wainwright's 214 Fells and visited all its towns and most of the villages, I know Cumbria very well. From where the mountains meet the sea at St Bees in the West to the Pennines and Westmorland Dales in the East, from the vast expanses of Morecambe Bay in the South to Hadrian's Wall in the North, I would love to share my passion for Cumbria, the Lake District and its two UNESCO World Heritage Sites with you.
