About this deal

His stories concerning "Father Tom" are a riot, and anyone would have been proud to have been associated with this Lakeland character.

Although come to think of it, when I read the final chapter I decided I agreed with his analysis of modern television.Robson told the PA news agency that the honour would draw attention to the plight of domestic tourism amid the coronavirus pandemic.

At the end of Chapter One of "Outside Broadcaster" Eric Robson reveals that his wife Annette counselled him against the writing of his autobiography.

Small Operator – Fiona Shore from Near Howe Cottages at Mungrisdale has much to contribute about her journey and how Cumbria Tourism can assist new and small operators going forward. whose proud boast was that he'd had 43 engine outs and lived to tell the tale" might mean something to you, but not to me it doesn't!

But he wrote about the town, its inhabitants, and the nearby landscape and geology of the Lakes in a unique way. Robson takes pride in his northern roots and has never been tempted to move into the media bubble, save a two-week stint living in Ealing. Abroad - A Great Railway Journey Round the Lake District in the company of the mad, the bad and the dangerous to know. Next day after replacing the points I suggested we go to Devon for the rest of the time we had left of our summer holidays.

It’s entirely my decision,” he insists, his mellifluous Cumbrian drawl booming about the empty hall of Manchester Grammar School where we are sitting ahead of his final broadcast. To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average.
