Liz Woodham at The Armitt Museum

Event Details

PhD candidate Liz Woodham talks about her research on how guidebook writers past and present have differed in their approaches to wandering the fells. With endless routes to explore throughout the Lake District, it should come as no surprise that the way the fells, hills and mountains of our local landscape have been described has differed from writer to writer over the years. Tying in with her PhD research and her finds in the Armitt’s very own archives, Liz explores the idiosyncrasies of each writer’s unique perspective, and how these perspectives merge to form a fully-fledged image of the surrounding landscape, with a particular focus on the much-revered Striding Edge.
