History

Historic image of Langdale valley

Langdale through a lens - one family's love of the valley captured on film. 

Like many of us today, celebrated historian George Macauley Trevelyan fell completely in love with the Langdale valley during his family holidays here. So much so, that he was inspired to become its chief protector. This year we’re sharing some unique photos of their experience in the valley – 100 years on.
