“Swallows and Amazons for ever!” Welcome to the ART Website
The Arthur Ransome Trust (ART) exists to help people discover, re-discover, appreciate and enjoy the life and works of Arthur Ransome (1884 – 1967), author of Swallows and Amazons. The Trust is working to establish a permanent Arthur Ransome Centre in the southern Lake District. On the way to achieving this we are also developing a range of exciting projects, including exhibitions, displays and resource materials. Read more at our Welcome page
