Your recipe for the perfect Christmas
Here’s our recipe for a perfect Christmas in the North West - it’s made up of 12 ingredients we think make a magical time of year. We’d love to know what makes your Christmas go with a sparkle - so please let us know by sending your seasonal suggestions and festive photos to us on Facebook and Twitter.
Corridors and ancient privys
In praise of corridors and ancient privys: we're exploring the unsung architecture of our places in the North West.
In the footsteps of literary stars
The history of books, writers and literature is woven into the Cumbrian and Lakes landscape, but not many people know just how many literary threads are linked to the Trust.
Enjoy warming soups, home-made cakes, and traditional and festive food at many of our places this winter.
And if you're up in the Lakes, buy a glass of mulled wine at the Sticklebarn throughout December and get a free mince pie with it.
