The Arthur Ransome Trust is working to establish a public centre in the Lake District, dedicated to helping people discover, experience and enjoy Arthur Ransome's fascinating life and works.

Arthur Ransome (1884 - 1967) is best known for writing the Swallows and Amazons series of 12 novels, five of which are set on a fictional "lake in the north", modelled on Coniston Water and Windermere. 

But there was much more to Ransome's life. He once wrote that he had "lived not one life but snatches of a dozen different lives". These snatches - including as a war correspondent, political journalist, sailor, angler, amateur diplomat and suspected spy - are reflected in and help to explain his works, just as his dedication to writing and story telling help us to understand his life.

The Trust aims to explore the links between his works and his "dozen different lives" in the southern Lake District, his spiritual home.
