Lakeland Waterways free pdf Taking a trip on the Cumbrian lakes has been a distinctive and popular feature of holidays in the region for generations. But the story of water transport in the life of the Lakes goes back to the earliest settlers. For many years these waterways played a key role as one of the areas main transport lifelines, linking Lakeshore communities and supporting the development of local industries. The arrival of the railway ushered in an era of mass tourism, despite resistance from the Lake Poets, and Coniston Water, Derwentwater, Ullswater and Windermere witnessed the development of a broad range of regular steamer services. It is still possible to enjoy a trip on an original authentic pleasure steamer, several of which would be recognised by our Victorian forefathers. this book tells the rich and varied story from the Roman occupation to the present day, supported by a comprehensive selection of photographs and maps, and a full listing of all passenger vessels known to have operated on the Lakes.
