'West Cumbria' is an exploration of a place that has existed throughout its modern history on the edge of things.

Drawing insights from cultural and economic history, geography, architecture and the built environment, as well as literary and artistic representations, John Scanlan presents a perspective on a place defined not only by its western location, its coast and other boundaries, but by its existence on the margins of the Lake District. 'West Cumbria: On the Edge' reveals a little known and often overlooked place that by contrast with its more celebrated neighbour has always pushed up against and into the future.
