Mountain Republic

A Lake District Parish: Eighteen Men, The Lake Poets and the National Trust

Philippa Harrison

Located in the heart of the Lake District, Crosthwaite Parish was governed for centuries by 18 annually elected ‘customary tenants’, a system Wordsworth called ‘a perfect republic of shepherds’. Local resident Philippa Harrison recounts its fortunes through the Middle Ages and the Civil Wars, its discovery by the Lake Poets in the late 18th century, and how it became the birthplace of the National Trust in 1895.
