LITERARY RAVENGLASS

  •  A few random jottings

 

 

.....And then there's Ravenglass, and the bird-haunted

Sand-dunes lagooning a derelict sea.

This, Norman, is your country and your home.

And where your verse lives rooted like a tree

To where it grows, feeding its leaves therefrom.

DAVID WRIGHT (part of his 70th Birthday tribute poem to his friend the Millom poet Norman Nicholson (1914-1987; Wright himself lived at Portinscale)

 

  • Norman Nicholson himself wrote a longish poem about Ravenglass Railway Station.

 

  • The village features prominently  in Richard Adams’ book The Plague Dogs and in Hugh Walpole’s once-very-popular Herries Chronicles novels.
