Steve Uglow: The Story of Seatoller

Thu 6 June | 6pm

Borrowdale has been a secret valley, originally managed by the church and then by a monarchy merely interested in what minerals could be extracted. In the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries, landlords, especially for Seatoller, were notable for their absence. The families were Cumberland statesmen, independent and proud of it. Having lived there for over ten years, Steve Uglow has come to know and respect the valley, its people and their history.
