The Rebellious North


Hear how the turbulent past of the Border region led to a string of fortified towers, houses and even churches on the fringes of the mountainous Lake District.

Visit former castles which have been turned into stately homes and towers which are not normally open to the public.  Discover why front doors are at first floor level and why this area was so open to attack for hundreds of years.

An exciting look back at history which involves very little walking but can include steep steps at some properties.

Plenty of notice is required in order to gain access to private properties.

And then my heart with pleasure fills
And dances with the daffodils
