In 1769 Thomas Gray, best known for his Elegy in a Country Churchyard, recorded a tour of the Lake District in what is now hailed as the first example of modern travel writing. Following in his footsteps, Joseph Farington painted many views along the way. This delightful volume unites Gray's narrative, Farington's watercolours and the immensely popular prints based upon them, alongside modern colour photographs that show how little this much-loved landscape has changed in two centuries.
