MEET THE STORYTELLER
Martin Wilson

Hi. My name is Martin Wilson, I’ve lived in and around the English Lake District for most of my life and I’m passionate about exploring the area, discovering new local places and stories as I go. Over many years I have travelled across every part of the area, always in awe of the magnificent scenery, but also discovering different attractions along the way, many of which give us fascinating insights into local history and culture. I wanted to put my local knowledge to good use so have produced two websites, www.lakedistrictdrives.com which contains 16 fabulous drives, and www.lakedistrictonboard.com which tells you everything you need to know about exploring the area on public transport. They both visit all the best towns, villages, lakes, rivers, valleys and attractions across the Lake District, plus some delightful areas just outside the National Park but still within the county of Cumbria. I hope you can join me in exploring this wonderful area and discovering its stories.
