Many people living in and visiting the Lake District are charmed by the traditional buildings that accentuate the landscape. This book introduces the traditional houses, barns, watermills and chapels of the Lake District and the surrounding hills and valleys that make up the county of Cumbria. With the aid of hundreds of photographs, drawings and diagrams, the author explains how the building types have developed over the centuries and how the indigenous building materials of stone, clay, brick and slate have been used to create works of vernacular architecture which seem to grow out of the surrounding landscape.
