Lost & Found Exhibition opens

Friends of the Lake District’s Landscape and Language; Lost and Found exhibition used words and photographs to create a bridge spanning and celebrating the 85 years of the life of the charity from 1934 to 2019. Photos in the exhibition included 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.

Our Landscape and Language; Lost and Found photographic exhibition sadly had to close early so we thought we'd share some of the wonderful before and after images with you via our website. We've kicked things off this week with views of Ambleside Pier and Fleetwith Pike, you can view them here. We'll be adding more each week.
