Free entry to the exhibition.

Friends of the Lake District’s Landscape and Language: Lost and Found photographic exhibition is now showing at Keswick Museum. It uses words and photographs to create a celebration of the cultural history and dialect of Cumbria. This is a carefully chosen selection from our 85th anniversary exhibition.

Photos in the exhibition include historic Lakeland scenes taken from photographer Gwen Bertelsman’s book ‘Lakeland Life in the 1940s and 1950s' juxtaposed with photographs of the same scenes as they look today, by renowned local photographers Rosamund and John Macfarlane.

Accompanying the photos are ‘lost’ words for landscape inspired by their son and author Robert Macfarlane’s award winning and bestselling books “The Lost Words” and “Landmarks.” Delightful 'found’ words for landscape features created by local Keswick children are also illustrated by the Macfarlanes' captivating photographs.
